Family-Friendly Delaware Living: New Wizard of Oz Exhibit

Delaware living: fun for the whole family!

Whether you’re young or just young-at-heart, there’s plenty to celebrate when it comes to Delaware living. For starters, the area’s entertainment and outdoor recreation options are varied and numerous – from Sunday ball games at the stadium to hands-on wildlife workshops and classes that explore the fascinating coastal ecosystems near the Cristina Riverfront.

Ideally located just 5 minutes from downtown Wilmington attractions, the master planned community of Darley Green enables resident families to take full advantage of Delaware’s myriad events that cater to young minds (and short attention spans!)

For the ultimate family outing, why not take the kids for a magical trip “somewhere over the rainbow,” by visiting the brand new Wizard of Oz exhibit at the famed Delaware Children’s Museum. Promising to be nothing short of unforgettable, this temporary educational exhibition will run from September 28 through January 26, and offers children the opportunity to enter the fantastical world of Dorothy and her friends as they make their journey to The Emerald City.

Wizard of Oz children’s exhibit – activities and highlights

Continuing in their mission to inspire creativity and encourage learning in young minds, the Delaware Children’s Museum pulled out all the stops in this playful exhibit that commemorates the 75th anniversary of the cult film classic. Real elements from the movie—including Dorothy’s ruby red slippers—are all a part of this licensed show, where the whole family can explore the Witch’s castle, Munchkinland and The Emerald City along with Dorothy and her loveable pals.

Your little ones will be amazed as they virtually accompany Dorothy on her journey from Kansas. Wizard of Oz exhibit highlights include:

  • A trip to Professor Marvel's Wagon where children can create their own tornado in Dorothy's bedroom
  • Meeting the Scarecrow, the Cowardly Lion, and the Tin Man, and visiting the Munchkins’ houses
  • Making a "Horse of a Different Color" in The Emerald City using a kaleidoscope
  • Capturing the Wicked Witch's broom from Winged Monkeys
