Outside of the Oz Museum. Next door there was a restaurant called Toto's Tacoz Mexican Restaurant. Unfortunately, they were closed.

During the holiday break, I took the family to Manhattan to see my beloved and #12 ranked K-State basketball team play a home game. They won the game easily before a sell out crowd, and we had an absolute blast.
We had heard about a place called the Oz Museum nearby, so of course we had to visit. We drove about 15 minutes to Wamego, Kansas, in order to visit the Oz Museum, a tribute to the Wizard of Oz. Evidently, the museum is pretty well known, and we got to see some cool stuff.
After paying our admission, they told us to take all the pictures we wanted while inside. So, we did.
They had an area dedicated to each of the main characters: Dorothy, the Tinman, Scarecrow, and Lion, as well as for the Wicked Witch, Good Witch, and Wizard. I didn't see a Toto exhibit.

This little theater room had the Wizard of Oz playing non-stop..
Here are some of the funny signs/shirts that I saw in the gift shop:
