|Johnson County Museum celebrates 50th anniversary with two Family Fun Day events on Oct. 7|
Happy Anniversary to the Johnson County Museum! Bring the whole family to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the museum during two special events for all ages being planned on Oct. 7.
The events include a Healthy Hip Hop presented by “H3TV,” followed by Family Day at the Johnson County Museum. Both will take place beginning at the Johnson County Arts & Heritage Center, located in the former King Louie Building at 8788 Metcalf Ave., Overland Park.
The cost for either event is the regular museum admission rate, which is $5 for adults, $4 for seniors ages 60+, $3 for children , and museum members are free. Advance registration is not required for either event, as participants can purchase admission upon arrival.
Award winning children’s entertainers, Rappin’ Roy and Reggie Regg the magic man from H3TV, will present “Healthy Hip Hop,” and help participants stay in shape with their show, “Keep It Moving!” Enjoy dancing, magic, live animals, audience participation, age appropriate comedy, and lots of fun! This event begins at 10:30 a.m. and will last about one hour.
Beginning at 11:30 a.m., the Family Fun Day is a three-hour drop in program which will give participants a chance to explore the museum’s signature exhibition featuring the 1950s All-Electric House, and play in KidScape! Visitors can also tour our temporary exhibit, “Let’s Celebrate: Johnson County Museum is 50!” Have hands-on fun with activities and crafts offered in the museum from 11:30 to 2:30 pm.
