Most of the states in the lower Midwest like Oklahoma, Missouri and Kansas are not known to be touristy. We only visited these states when my sister used to live in Missouri years ago and trust me, it was hard to find things to do, most of the time we have to do a day trip. From Joplin, MO, we head out on a 3 hours journey to visit OZ museum in Wamego, Kansas.
It is a small place but a great place if you are a fan of the story, the amount of work they put in it was amazing. Some of the stuff are original articles but of course you can’t touch them. My favorite park is the life size statues.
