Follow The Yellow Brick Road To Miami Childrenâ€™s Museum The Wizard Of Oz Childrenâ€™s Educational Exhibition Returns!
Weâ€™re off to see The Wizard of Oz, as Miami Childrenâ€™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 Childrenâ€™s Educational Exhibit is set to return to MCM September 22, 2012.
Created by MCM and licensed by Warner Bros. Consumer Products, this interactive fantasy-adventure takes children and families over the rainbow to continue the celebration of the filmâ€™s 70th anniversary milestone. The Wizard of Oz Childrenâ€™s Educational Exhibition debuted first in Miami in 2010 before traveling to other major cities, including Boston, New York, Minneapolis, Pittsburgh and many others.
And you donâ€™t need to ride a tornado to get there. Just come to Miami Childrenâ€™s Museum, on Watson Island, at 980 MacArthur Causeway. The Wizard of Oz Children’s Educational Exhibition is a journey of self-discovery for the whole family! Guests travel from the Gale Farm to the colorful Land of Oz, where they explore Munchkinland, The Crossroads, The Witchâ€™s Castle and The Emerald City before heading back over the rainbow to Miami, because, of course, â€œThereâ€™s no place like home.â€
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 exhibition include Dorothyâ€™s Ruby Slippers, the characters everyone knows and loves from the film, and classic movie moments.
Visit Professor Marvelâ€™s Wagon and create your own tornado in Dorothyâ€™s bedroom. Explore Munchkin houses and meet Dorothyâ€™s friends the Scarecrow, the Cowardly Lion and the Tin Man. Enter The Emerald City and create a â€œHorse of a Different Color,â€ play at the kaleidoscope and prism stations, but â€œpay no attention to the man behind the curtain.â€ Next, climb the mountain to the Wicked Witchâ€™s Castle to capture the Wicked Witchâ€™s broom from Winged Monkeys. Finally, click your heels three times while reciting â€œThereâ€™s no place like home,â€ as guests depart the Land of Oz
