A brightly colored graphic with a school house, hospital, theatre, and barn over the word "KidScape"The Museum is currently CLOSED to the public.  We will reopen in June 2017 in the new Johnson County Arts and Heritage Center.

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 1900 the city, 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.
