"The Wonderful Wizard of Oz."
Event Info: (847) 832-6600 kohlchildrensmuseum.org
The Kohl museum's exhibit takes kids over the rainbow with Dorothy and friends as it explores Oz author L. Frank Baum's books. Take the kids to walk among 3-D versions of illustrations by W.W. Denslow, who inspired the set of the classic 1939 Wizard of Oz film starring Judy Garland. Then explore hands-on interactives, including Dorothy’s House, where kids can relive traditional farm life with try-on period costumes; a mini tornado alley where kids can create their own stormy vortex; and the Land of Munchkins, complete with munchkins, a munchkin house and DIY puppet show. Exhibits here cover just about every character.
