This weekend marks the grand opening of a brand-new "Wizard of Oz" exhibit at the National Museum of Play in downtown Rochester.
True to the museum's interactive setup, the exhibit takes a hands-on look at the classic film. Guests can take a stroll through a sepia-toned Gale Farm and try out Professor Marvel's Wagon, and also sit inside Dorothy's Bedroom as it whirls through a tornado - simulated by a titled room and interactive spinning.
As in the movie, the color splash occurs when the journey continues with games, slides and magic-like tricks of science and color as guests travel through Munchkinland, and along the Yellow Brick Road. After stops at the iconic Witch's Castle and Emerald City, and guests can transform their own voice into "the Great and Powerful Oz."
