The Twister Museum displays a collection from the Twister Movie. The small town of Wakita was transformed into a movie set for the 1996 action movie blockbuster, Twister, starring Helen Hunt and Bill Paxton in which Wakita was destroyed by an F4 tornado that was part of a storm system later spawning an F5 tornado. False fronts were built onto the existing store fronts for some shots and then were removed and replaced with rubble in the streets after the tornado hit and the rest of the building was removed using CGI. Some buildings were demolished, but nothing was put in to replace them. The Twister (The Movie) Celebration is each year in May.
