The Johnson County Museum moved to its new home in the Johnson County Arts and Heritage Center in the spring of 2017. The Johnson County Museum Foundation raised $1.8 million to fund the new long-term exhibitions.  Visitors connect with our history through two long-term exhibits: Becoming Johnson County  and Kidscape.  A changing gallery introduces visitors to new ideas and themes in engaging exhibtions several times each year.


In Becoming Johnson County, visitors explore the county's history and development through four key themes:  land, policy, and regionalism, and our people. Tour and discover how Johnson County residents have worked together to create the community of today. The 1950s All-Electric House, the centerpiece of the exhibit, exemplifies the American Dream many hoped to find in Johnson County.  KidScape, the renowned children's interactive experience, is bigger and better!  Kids have fun exploring these three unique communities, kids learn through play about the past. 

The Johnson County Museum Foundation gratefully acknowledges the following individuals and organizations for their financial support of the On the Move Capital Campaign. With their gifts, the Museum Foundation raised close to $1.8 million dollars to fund the new exhibitions at the Johnson County Arts & Heritage Center.
