The Johnson County Museum is rolling out new socially-distanced Family Field Trip Days at the Lanesfield School Historic Site, 18745 S Dillie Road, Edgerton, in March and April.

Participants will experience a bit of life in 1904 - from life on the farm and completing chores to the challenges of lessons inside the one-room schoolhouse.

“On Family Field Trip Days, visitors will get an inside look at the history of Johnson County on a kid-friendly tour, led by one of our museum educators,” explained Curator of Education Leah Palmer.

“They will also dig into the past with educator-led learning activities that give families a chance to put what they learn into practice.”

The programs, lasting about two hours each, are open not only to families, but also schools, homeschool and scout groups. Group size will be limited to allow for social distancing.

Family Field Trip Days are offered at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Tuesday, March 16; Friday, March 19; Saturday, April 17; and Wednesday, April 21.
