Johnson County Museum

  • Overview
  • Come and explore our signature exhibition, ‘Becoming Johnson County’, to gain a deeper understanding of the county’s history. The 1950s All-Electric House, the centerpiece of the exhibit, exemplifies the American Dream many hoped to find in Johnson County. Our changing exhibit space features special exhibits and the kids can enjoy a fun hands on learning experience in KidScape! The Johnson County Museum is open Monday through Saturday, 9 A.M. to 4:30 P.M. Admission is $5 for adults, $4 for seniors, $3 for children 1-18, under 1 is free. Guided tours are at 11:00 A.M. and 2:00 P.M. every day and are included in your admission. Johnson County Museum is located in the Arts & Heritage Center on 8788 Metcalf Ave., Overland Park, KS. Visit www.jcprd.com/Museum for more information. Through exploration of three unique communities, kids learn through play about the past. An 1870s farmstead introduces kids to life on the farm-- tending animals, collecting eggs, gardening and house chores inside the farmhouse. Time travel to the 1900s, where kids sell fruits and vegetables at the City Market, perform for an audience at the theatre, and teach at the school. Suburban life springs up in the 1950s! Care for sick patients at the hospital, cook up burgers and fries at the diner, and build a house for a new suburban family. Even explore a park with a secret cave! Kidscape offers hours of fun for kids to explore and play.
