Eureka children’s museum in Halifax was transformed into a Wizard of Oz wonderland.
Joining in was a representative from Kansas – the state where the film is supposedly set.
Families met characters and took part in crafts, challenges and science tricks.
Eureka Theatre was transformed into the Emerald City, where children followed an obstacle course through the Land of Oz and younger children enjoyed rainbow-themed activities.
Derek Mackenzie-Hook, from Kansas Tourism, flew in to tell visitors about the place where the iconic film is set.
He joined costumed stars to give away 40 books and four lucky winners got tickets to the West End musical. Family train travel was given by Grand Central.
