Kidscape at Johnson County Museum

Highlights

  • Designed to look like a suburban streetscape, Kidscape includes the several learning areas: bookstore, park, City Hall, hospital, fashion boutique, theater, and post office.
  • Each learning area has multiple ways to play, including puzzles, instruments, dolls, and mini golf, to name just a few.
  • Kidscape is a portion of the Johnson County Museum, which details county history.
  • If you’re visiting in the afternoon, stop by the 1950s All-Electric House. It’s open from 1:00 to 4:00 pm, and is available by guided tour every half hour. Admission is $5.00 for adults and $3.00 for kids, and you’ll see “futurisitc” gadgets and technology of the time.
  • Check their calendar for sensory-friendly times.

Tot Spot Tips

  • Older kids enjoy playing mailman. Each letter has an “address” written on it, so kids can drop off the mail in coordinating mailboxes.
  • Perform surgery on a wooden “body” in the hospital. You can even take out the inner organs.
  • We enjoy making bracelets with beads and pipe cleaners in the boutique.
  • Be sure to travel all the way through Kidscape and into the museum to find a tractor and grocery store for more pretend playing opportunities.
  • Arrive as soon as they open to avoid crowds.
