Take A Trip Down The Yellow Brick Road To The Delightful Judy Garland Museum In Minnesota
When it comes to celebrities, Minnesota has a few claims to fame. Bob Dylan and Prince are among the most famous. But there is a well-known celebrity whose Minnesota origins are often forgotten. Judy Garland was born in Grand Rapids, Minnesota, and spent her early childhood here before moving to California. The family home is still standing in Grand Rapids, and it’s open to visitors as a museum of Judy Garland’s life. If you’re a Wizard of Oz fan – or just a Judy Garland fan – you will love this delightful spot. Here’s what you need to know about it:
