Overview

This modest house in Grand Rapids, Minnesota, was home to Judy Garland for her first four years. Come see where "Baby Gumm" got her start. We have over 3000 collector pieces in our Land of Oz including (but not limited to) the carriage from the movie! We also have a Children's museum with many hands on activities for kids that will get their imaginations going. It sports a bakery, firehall, dress-up area, "sand" pit, water table, maze, treehouse and much more! If you are a teacher, visit our website today to plan a field trip! Many of our field trips qualify for a grant that helps you come for free!

This is a neat little place but when I say little I mean little. Takes all of five minutes to see it and get out the door.

Yes, it has a yellow brick road, sort of. The museum, and connected childrens' areas are good for families. There are lots of photos, artifacts and collections to view. The authentic carriage was impressive. Basically, this is a very positive, up-beat tribute to Judy Garland....More
