|Johnson County Museum offers Free Day on Nov. 22|
Do you have family coming into town for Thanksgiving, or just want a fun outing for this holiday week? The Johnson County Museum is offering a Free Day on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving.
If you haven't experienced the museum in its new location - or even if you have - come enjoy the museum, including the 1950s All-Electric House, and the 2,500 square-foot main exhibit titled "Becoming Johnson County," featuring more than 400 objects, and more than 500 photographs. The KidScape experience is a 3,500-square foot area of the museum which lets kids learn about the past through three unique communities. There’s a 1870 farmstead, a 1900s city, and a 1950s diner. A special temporary exhibit called "Let's Celebrate - Johnson County Museum is 50" will be in the museum's changing exhibit gallery through April 14 and celebrates 50 years of collecting with the museum.
The Free Day is a six-and-one-half-hour drop-in event which will take place from 9 am to 4:30 pm on Wednesday, Nov. 22. Pre-registration is not required. The Johnson County Museum is located in the former King Louie Building at 8788 Metcalf Ave., Overland Park.
