Let's Celebrate: 50 Years of the Johnson County Museum

The exhibit was on view from October 25, 2017 to August 4, 2018.

In celebration of the Museum's 50th Anniversary, Let's Celebrate! highlighted objects collected over our 50-year history. Selections were made by the museum's curator based on the traditional and modern anniversary gift lists. Many of the objects have never been exhibited before, and represented a fun twist on what would be considered a "gift!" From a 1967 Amana microwave from the 4th anniversary modern gift list to a 1920s leather prosthetic arm representing the traditional 3rd anniversary gift list, the exhibit was full of interesting stories about Johnson County's local history. A timeline celebrating the major milestones in the museum's institutional history was also included in the exhibit.
