Originally silver shoes in the book, the film version of The Wizard of Oz fitted Dorothy in ruby slippers because the color looked better on film and matched the Tin Man's ruby-studded sports car. Get tails wagging with today's Groupon to the Oz Museum in Wamego. Choose between the following options:
- For $11, you get four admissions (up to a $28 value).
- For $20, you get an individual lion-level membership (a $50 value).
The Oz Museum chronicles more than a century's worth of memorabilia associated with L. Frank Baum's cherished 1900 fairy tale and celebrates the inescapable link between Oz and the state of Kansas. Museum wanderers can view early copies of the book and find treasures from the famed 1939 MGM musical starring Judy Garland, as well as artifacts from earlier silent film versions, including one starring Oliver Hardy as the Tin Man. Travel off the beaten yellow path with mementos from various retellings, including the 1978 film The Wiz starring Diana Ross and Michael Jackson, and the Broadway musical Wicked. An individual lion-level membership grants the cardholder Oz Museum updates, free admission, and 5% off in-store museum purchases for one year, as well as the courage to dress up as Glinda at an all-Wicked Witch costume party.
Children 3 and younger are admitted free without this Groupon.
