I was pleasantly surprised at how well this museum is put together. I recommend it to anyone who would like to learn about Johnson County Kansas. Includes a great 1950's all electric home. My son and I spent more than 3 hours enjoying the exhibits.
Love sharing the history of Johnson County with my kids. Its a fun colorful museum to take the kids and they can look without worry. The interactive parts and looking at the 1950's house it is great. They think the house phone is cool.
Johnson County Museum has a well-maintained, fascinating history of the area. It would be great for children as well as adults with engaging and thought-provoking questions about land, development, and displacement. There are child-centered activities too. This is a great museum for all ages. Closed on Sundays. Exhibits change often. Have a Kidscape area for little ones. The All-electric house brought a lot of memories to mind.
I grew up in the area in the 60s and had no idea a museum about Johnson County could be so interesting! The graphics in the displays go from engaging to visually arresting. The '54 all electric home is just riveting for anyone who grew up any time close to that era. Nothing but love for that place. Wanna go back and look at it some more!
Took my sister, and all 11 grandchildren and their moms. We had a blast! The Wizard of Oz attraction that's here for a time was great and the all electric 50's home fascinating and retro-fun for me and my sister. This place even hosts events and theatre at resonable cost.
