A traveling exhibit exploring the history of federal, of f-reservation American Indian boarding schools, which operated between the 1880s and the 1980s, is the latest temporary exhibit now being presented through Match 18 by the Johnson County Museum.

“Away from Home: American Indian Boarding School Stories” does not tell the story of the Shawnee Indian Mission State Historic Site in Fairway. The Haskell site in Lawrence is the closest example of the federal system.

The temporary exhibit takes place at the Johnson County Museum, located inside the Johnson County Arts & Heritage Center, 8788 Metcalf Ave., Overland Park. Exhibit admission is included with regular museum admission rates.
