Johnson County Museum offers Free Day on June 2


Celebrate National Trails day on June 2 with a free visit to the Johnson County Museum.

If you haven't experienced the museum in its Metcalf 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 an 1870s 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 Aug. 4 and celebrates 50 years of collecting with the museum.

The Free Day at the Johnson County Museum is a seven-and-one-half-hour drop-in event which will take place from 9 am to 4:30 pm on Saturday, June 2. Pre-registration is not required. The Johnson County Museum is located at 8788 Metcalf Ave., Overland Park.
