Mobility & Access

Most public areas are wheelchair accessible. Courtesy wheelchairs are available for use at no charge on a first-come first-served basis.  To request a reasonable accommodation for assistive equipment in prohibited areas, please provide at least 48 hours’ notice.

Wheelchair accessible restrooms are available on both floors of the Johnson County Arts & Heritage Center.

There is an elevator available with access to both levels of the building. The elevator is located inside the museum doors on the main level and underneath the stairs, near the restrooms, on the museum level.

Trained service animals are welcome in our building. Due to the nature of the space, we are unable to accommodate emotional support animals.

Johnson County Museum

The museum galleries, including KidScape, are wheelchair accessible. 

Parts of the 1950’s All-Electric House have limited access. A virtual tour is available here.

Black Box Theater Events

ADA designated seating is available for all Theatre in the Park performances.  ADA seats are indicated on the ticketing page.

There is a ramp from the Creative Commons space to the theatre.  The online seating chart provides information on number of stairs to access all seating in a specific layout.

Final evening performances (usually the final Saturday evening of the run) are ASL interpreted. Designated ASL seats are indicated on that show’s specific ticketing site.  

Hearing assist devices are available for any Theatre in the Park performance.  You can request a device to use for free from the box office at the front desk at the Arts and Heritage Center when you arrive.  They are not hearing aid compatible, but ear buds are provided.

The Theatre in the Park program is available on our website through a program called ISSU.  This allows for screen readers to be used and for patrons to zoom in to increase font size if desired.

For some show runs, Theatre in the Park offers a sensory friendly performance outside of the usual performance schedule to adjust the theatre going environment to better accommodate patrons with sensory sensitives.  Full details about sensory friendly performances will be available on the Theatre in the Park website on the show specific site and we will share information via eBlast and social media.
