Dorothy's House Museum in Liberal, Kansas, is an interactive walk down the yellow brick road. Join Dorothy as she gives you a tour of the farm house and then leads you down the famous road where you can meet the Scarecrow, Tin Man, Cowardly Lion and Toto. See memorabilia from the 1939 movie, and check out the gift shop for that perfect souvenir.

Best and worst time to go to Dorothy's House
The museum is open Mondays through Saturdays, 9:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m., and 1:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m. on Sundays Memorial Day through Labor Day.

Labor Day to Memorial Day, the doors to Oz are open Tuesdays through Saturdays, 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m and Sundays, 1:00 p.m-5:00 p.m.

June, July and August are the busy season, but mainly, the only weekend to avoid is the first weekend in October. That weekend is set aside for "Oz-fest", and it will be crowded, and might be a bit frightening for small children, as many guests dress in costume to join the festivities.
