The Johnson County Museum was started by volunteer community members 55 years ago, and ever since we have benefitted from the robust support of our volunteer partners. The Friends of the Johnson County Museum actively work with The Parks & Recreation Foundation of Johnson County to secure the necessary resources to provide the highest quality museum experiences.
The Friends serve vital roles of fundraising, programming, promoting, and contributing to the strategic planning for the Johnson County Museum. We meet the fourth Thursday of even months from 4:30-6:00pm. Our committees include the executive committee, development committee, and special events committee. Task forces may also be formed.
In the coming years, we are most excited to focus our efforts on continuing strategic initiatives to support KidScape, scholarships, and more for young children and students. We are also excited to expand with member offerings for young professionals and those who are excited by midcentury modern and other themes explored in the museum. We hope to create unique experiences that will drive membership and elevate the museum even more in the community.
Applications are now open to join the Friends of the Johnson County Museum. The deadline to apply is January 29, 2023.
