Becoming Johnson County Exhibit Tour
Johnson County’s 200 year history is rich and varied; from the earliest Native peoples, to the civil war, to the population boom in the 1950s and beyond, our community has grown from just 4,000 to half a million people in 150 years. Several tour stops at key moments in our history will ask you to imagine and wonder about the past. The 1950s All-Electric House is a favorite stop, along with hands-on interactives throughout the exhibit. Tours leave from the reception desk every day at 11 am and 2 pm, and last one hour. Groups over 10 must call to arrange a separate time.

Join us for a behind the scenes tour of the Johnson County Museum’s collections storage facility at the new Arts & Heritage Center!

The Arts & Heritage Center facility holds the museum’s two-dimensional collection, including manuscript collections, maps, photographs, and quilts. Scout groups welcome. Tour lasts one hour.
