We’re off to see The Wizard Of Oz as Miami Children’s Museum(MCM) hosts the return home of the first-ever, licensed traveling educational exhibit based on the beloved movie classic. The Wizard Of Oz Educational Exhibit is set to return to MCM Oct. 3.
Created by MCM and licensed by Warner Bros. Consumer Products, this interactive fantasy-adventure takes children and families over the rainbow to experience the magic of this beloved film. The Wizard Of Oz Educational Exhibit first debuted in Miami in 2010 before traveling to other major cities, including Boston, New York, Minneapolis and Pittsburgh.
Opening Oct. 3 at Miami Children’s Museum, on Watson Island, at 980 MacArthur Causeway, The Wizard Of Oz Educational Exhibit is a journey of selfdiscovery for the whole family! Guests travel from the Gale Farm to the colorful Land of Oz, where they explore Munchkinland, The Crossroads, The Witch’s Castle and The Emerald City before heading back over the rainbow to Miami, because, of course, “There’s no place like home.”
Along the way, everyone will experience the adventures of Dorothy and her friends as they find their way back to true happiness. Elements of the movie available only in this licensed exhibit include the Ruby Slippers, the characters everyone knows and loves from the film, and classic movie moments.
Visit the Wagon of Professor Marvel and create your own tornado in Dorothy’s bedroom. Explore Munchkin houses and meet Dorothy and her friends — Scarecrow, Cowardly Lion and Tin Man. Enter The Emerald City and create a “Horse of a Different Color,” play at the kaleidoscope and prism stations, but “pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.” Climb the mountain to the Castle of the Wicked Witch Of The West to capture her broom from Winged Monkeys. Finally, click your heels three times while reciting “There’s no place like home,” as you depart the Land of Oz.
The Wizard Of Oz Educational Exhibit is a marvelous adventure of self-discovery for the whole family, only here for a limited time, Oct. 3 through Jan. 10, 2016 at Miami Children’s Museum.
Entrance to The Wizard Of Oz Educational Exhibit is included in each regular admission to the museum. Admission is $18 for adults and children, $14 for Florida residents, free for children under 1 year and admission for members is complimentary.
