|Take a Behind-the-Scenes Tour of the Johnson County Museum on Aug. 16 or 26|
Join us for a behind the scenes tour of the Johnson County Museum's collections storage facility at the new Johnson County Arts & Heritage Center during a new special event offered two times and mid and late August.
This Behind-the-Scenes Museum Tour is for all ages and is offered on Aug. 16 and again on Aug. 26. Visitors will learn why we collect, how we collect, and the importance of these efforts to our local community. Our collection features over 17,000 3D objects and over one million images. The Johnson County Arts & Heritage Center facility holds the museum’s two-dimensional collection, including manuscript collections, maps, photographs, and quilts. Scout groups are welcome!
