A few Saturdays ago, Pat and the Bug had a chance to check out the new Oz exhibit at Port Discovery. Although we haven’t let the Bug watch the movie yet, she absolutely loved the exhibit — especially riding the bike and checking out the sparkly ruby red slippers.
Here’s what Port Discovery says about the exhibit:
Dorothy, Tin Man, and Scarecrow await at Port Discovery Children’s Museum’s new traveling exhibit, The Wizard of Oz Children’s Educational Exhibition. Created by Miami Children’s Museum and licensed by Warner Bros. Consumer Products, this interactive fantasy-adventure takes children and families over the rainbow to continue the celebration of the film’s 70th anniversary milestone.
Travel from the Gale Farm in Kansas to the colorful Land of Oz where you can explore Munchinkland , The Crossroads, the Witch’s Castle , and Emerald City with Dorothy and her friends.
Elements of the movie available only in this licensed exhibition include Dorothy’s Ruby Slippers, images of the characters everyone knows and loves from the film and classic movie moments:
Visit Professor Marvel’s Wagon and create your own tornado in Dorothy’s bedroom.
Explore Munchkin houses and meet Dorothy’s friends the Scarecrow, the Cowardly Lion and the Tin Man.
Enter The Emerald City and create a “Horse of a Different Color,” play at the kaleidoscope and prism stations
Climb the mountain to the Wicked Witch’s Castle to capture the Wicked Witch’s broom from Winged Monkeys.
After playing, remember to click your heels three times while reciting “There’s no place like home,” as you depart the Land of Oz.
Definitely Bug approved! Catch the exhibit now through September at PD. Free with paid admission.
