Step into one of the most famous fairy tales of all time at Dorothy’s House and the Land of Oz in Liberal, Kan. A bronzed Dorothy greets visitors as they enter the 1907 house that was refinished and restored to be similar to the 1939 farmhouse in which Dorothy Gale from “The Wizard of Oz” lived. Spanning 5,000 square feet, the Land of Oz includes animated entertainment and famous characters such as the Munchkins, talking trees, flying monkeys, the Wicked Witch of the West, Glinda, Dorothy and Toto, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion. Those who fell in love with the 1939 movie will especially appreciate the original model of Dorothy’s house from the tornado scene that is displayed at the Land of Oz.
Visitors can stroll across the 1,700-count yellow brick road leading to Dorothy’s House and the Land of Oz. Those wanting to leave a permanent mark on the grounds can personalize a yellow brick for $65. Guides dressed as Dorothy give tours throughout the year.
