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 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!

The museum hosted a Christmas party that was so much fun, and free!! We were up there for a hockey tournament and our group of 12 year old girls had a blast! Thank you Judy Garland Museum!

Such an interesting museum at Judy Garland's childhood home. Besides Judy memorabilia, they have many Wizard of Oz items including the original carriage used in the movie. Adjacent to the Children's Discovery Museum. One entrance fee allows access to both museums.

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.
