Johnson County Museum of History
Johnson County Museum of History  

The Johnson County Museum of History opened in 1967 in the former Greenwood School. The facility includes permanent and changing galleries, a research library, an education center and a museum store.

Museum staff, with the support of the Friends of the Johnson County Museums, community members and consultants, developed a permanent exhibit titled Seeking the Good Life, which debuted in 1998. The focus of the exhibit is the history of Johnson County from Native Americans to territorial days to modern office parks.

The rotating exhibit gallery is host to temporary or traveling exhibits, which relate to the history of the county. Click here for a schedule of upcoming exhibits.

Admission is free. The museum is open Monday through Saturday 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
