Land of Oz – Liberal, Kansas

Land of oz.jpgLand of Oz – Liberal, Kansas

Just when you thought that the dream of the Land of Oz was out of your reach there appears before you the Land of Oz in Liberal!  This facility consists of 5,000 square feet of animated entertainment.  There are good and bad witches, the Munchkins, talking trees, winged monkeys, and of course, Dorothy, the Scarecrow and Tin Man as well as the loveable Cowardly Lion.  Oh, of course, Toto is bad witch.jpgthere too!

Stroll along the Yellow Brick Road with Dorothy, Auntie Em or Uncle Henry as your tour guide.  Ask all the questions you want and learn even more about the wonderful world of Oz.

When you get to the end of the Road you will find Oz memorabilia on display, including the original model of Dorothy’s house used in the 1939 filming of the movie "The Wizard of Oz."  The Munchkin room is a delight in little dresses and shoes, with many pictorial accounts of the Munchkins and their careers.

Dorothy’s House was originally built in 1907.  It has been carefully restored and furnished to replicate the house shown in the movie.  It shows how Dorothy really came to believe "There’s no place like home."

When you think of Liberal you really must think of the wonderful memories of the movie and the music that have lived on for years.  The community welcomes everyone that wants to touch that bit of magic created by Dorothy and her friends.dorothy and gang.jpg

    I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE wIZARD OF oZ!!!!

  2. My family passed thru the ‘Land of Oz’ several years ago. It’s good to see that Oz is still around to be enjoyed. My daughter, Bethany, was 4 at the time and ‘Dorothy’ was kind enough to take Bethany on a tour of Oz. We enjoyed it so much that we returned and took part in the OzFest the following year. At that time, Bethany, Laurie (my wife) and I attended a meeting with four munchkins and the grand son of L. Frank Baum. Later on the weekend, a tea was held by ‘Glenda – the good witch’, (Neice of Billie Burke) entertained children by reading a shot story. Dorothy’s House was host to a dinner held at the Mid-American Air Museum. Airplane buffs will enjoy viewing may unique planes on display. Two great places to visit when passing near Liberal, Ks. And, you will not ‘dent’ your pocketbook. Thanks to the volunteers at the gift shop for a terrific trip to Dorothy’s HOuse and the “Land of Oz’.
