Guests of the exhibit will enjoy a variety of activities from the land over the rainbow that promote imagination and creativity. Along the way, everyone will experience the adventures of Dorothy and her friends as they travel a real Yellow Brick Road painted in the Museum Plaza leading them all the way from Munchkinland to the Emerald City. 

Elements of the movie available only in this licensed exhibition include shoes like Dorothy’s Ruby Slippers, the characters everyone knows from the film and other classic movie moments.  

The exhibit will be on display from Saturday, May 24-Sept. 7.
