Kidscape at Johnson County Museum
- 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.
