You Can Take A Real Life Yellow Brick Road To A Small Town In Kansas
We all have our feelings about
The Wizard of Oz, but we can all agree it’s a cult classic movie that makes you feel right at home. Have you ever wanted to walk the yellow brick road for yourself, or see inside Dorothy’s home? It’s not large enough to drive on, but this yellow brick road is covered in names and places, and perfect for clicking your heels together. Good thing you’re already home!
Welcome to Liberal, Kansas, and the Dorothy's House Museum and attraction.
The exibit portion was originally created and displayed in Topeka, but the attraction was moved to Liberal by its creator, Linda Windler. Now, it's part of the Coronado Museum area, and displays history of the movie and a close replica of Dorothy's home.
The home itself was purchased for its resemblance to the home from the movie, and transformed into an addition to this museum collection.
Inside the home, you can find pieces of dated furniture and items from the home that have been made to look like they belong to the characters from the movie. You can see one of Dorothy's dresses in the right hand side.
Here, you can walk, skip, and hop along the yellow brick road just like you've seen in the movie, though these bricks are paved with all of the childhood wonder you had when you first saw the movie.
Additionally, there's an Oz themed playground for any younger visitors you may bring with you. Sticking your head in the holes to take silly photos is always fun, no matter your age.
No matter where you are in the world, people know what Kansas is because of this movie. It's a great place to see, and it's perfect for making lifetime memories.
Address: 567 East Cedar Street, Liberal, KS 67901
