(PRESS RELEASE)_MIAMI, Fla. (March 20, 2019) – Brightline is South Florida’s Yellow Brick Road to the Wizard of Oz™ Educational Exhibit Experience, in partnership with Miami Children’s Museum and in celebration of the 80th anniversary of the classic movie. Housed in MiamiCentral Station, the Wizard of Oz™ Educational Exhibit is open now through Sunday, June 16. Included with the purchase of a Brightline ticket, guests can travel from the Gale Farm to the colorful Land of Oz, where they will explore Munchkinland, The Crossroads, The Witch’s Castle and The Emerald City™ before heading back over the rainbow to Miami, because, of course, “there’s no place like home.”
Open 7 days a week through June 16, riders are invited to a multi-sensory educational experience, with activities centered around art, music and science inspired by the classic movie. Special events will be held throughout the duration of the exhibit; meet DOROTHY™, SCARECROW™, COWARDLY LION™ and TIN MAN™, take a guided tour led by the Miami Children’s Museum staff in addition to other experiences for fans of all ages to be announced.
Exclusive elements from the original film will be on display, including the infamous RUBY SLIPPERS™. Visit the wagon of Professor Marvel and create your own tornado in DOROTHY’S™ bedroom. Explore Munchkin houses before entering The Emerald City™. Create a “Horse of a Different Color” and play at the kaleidoscope and prism stations, but “pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.”
“We are excited to welcome guests of all ages this spring for a magical, one-of-a-kind interactive experience at Brightline’s MiamiCentral station,” said Johanna Rojas, Brightline’s Vice President of Marketing. “We love collaborating with local partners, like the Miami Children’s Museum, to offer our riders unexpected special events year-round.”
“Miami Children’s Museum is thrilled to partner with Brightline to provide fun educational experiences for children and their families,” said Deborah Spiegelman, CEO/Executive Director, Miami Children’s Museum. “The partnership is an example of how the Museum extends beyond its 4 walls to serve South Florida’s diverse community.”
