Johnson County Museum of History/The 1950s All-Electric House
The museum is relocating and is scheduled to open back up in May of 2017.
Permanent and changing exhibits explore life in Johnson County and the influence of suburbia in America. Also on the grounds of the Museum is the 1950's all-electric house; a throwback to what technology was like decades ago. Originally constructed by Kansas City Power & Light electric company in 1954, the five-room ranch house captures why a home in the suburbs was part of the American dream after World War II.
For kids ages 3-9, be sure to visit Kidscape - an imaginative play area inside the Museum. They'll love pretending to be the Mayor in charge, a doctor in the surgery room, and a creative boutique owner.
Open Monday-Saturday: 10:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Children 1 - 17: $3
Adults 18 and older: $5
