There’s no place like home.
Boston, MA (PRWEB) May 17, 2011
We’re off to see The Wizard of Oz, as Boston Children’s Museum (BCM) hosts the first-ever, licensed traveling educational exhibit based on the beloved movie classic. The Wizard of Oz Children’s Educational Exhibit is set to open on Monday, May 23, 2011. 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.
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 Witch’s Castle and The Emerald City before heading back over the rainbow to Boston, because, of course, “There’s no place like home.”
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 Dorothy’s Ruby Slippers, 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, but “pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.” Next, climb the mountain to the Wicked Witch’s Castle to capture the Wicked Witch’s broom from Winged Monkeys. Finally, click your heels three times while reciting “There’s no place like home,” as guests depart the Land of Oz.
The Wizard of Oz Children’s Educational Exhibition is a marvelous adventure of self-discovery for the whole family, only at Boston Children’s Museum from May 23 – September 10, 2011 locally sponsored by the MEFA U.Fund College Investing Plan and Fidelity Investments.
