Just a few days remain to see the wonderful Wizard of Oz in Baltimore, as Port Discovery Children’s Museum hosts The Wizard of Oz Children’s Educational Exhibition, the first-ever licensed traveling educational exhibit based on the beloved movie classic. The exhibition closes on September 15, 2013.
Created by Miami Children’s Museum and licensed by Warner Bros. Consumer Products in honor of the film’s 70th anniversary, this interactive fantasy-adventure is a journey of self-discovery for the whole family. Guests travel from the Gale Farm to the colorful Land of Oz and back. Along the way there is a chance to make your own tornado in Dorothy’s bedroom, explore Munchkinland, create a “Horse of a Different Color,” play at the kaleidoscope and prism stations, and climb the mountain to the Wicked Witch’s Castle to capture the Wicked Witch’s broom from winged monkeys. Finally, guests will click their heels three times while reciting “there’s no place like home,” as they leave the Land of Oz.
Elements of the movie available only in this licensed exhibition include Dorothy’s ruby slippers, as well as the characters and classic moments everyone knows and loves from the film.
Entrance to The Wizard of Oz Children’s Educational Exhibition is included in each regular admission to Port Discovery Children’s Museum. Admission is $13.95 for ages two years and up. Museum members and children under two years are admitted free. This special exhibit is locally sponsored by M&T Bank, Towson Town Center, White Marsh Mall and The Mall in Columbia.
Port Discovery’s next special exhibit will be “Holiday Springs & Sprockets” and will debut October 14, 2013. This interactive exhibit will feature holiday-themed mechanical sculptures created by artist Steve Gerberich. For more information, visit www.portdiscovery.org or call 410-727-8120.
