This new special exhibit showcases the impact of railroads on the county's landscape, people, and economy. Through interactive displays, historical artifacts, and engaging visuals, visitors are transported back in time to witness the dramatic changes that rail transportation brought to Johnson County.
TRAINS explores the transition of isolated subsistence farms in the county into an interconnected network of farms selling for market, the rise and fall of cities, and the emergence of new businesses that sprang up throughout the county. From the early days of the Kansas Pacific Railway to the modern-day BNSF Railway, the exhibit will showcase the evolution of rail transportation itself and highlight how it continues to shape Johnson County today.
Included with regular museum admission. The Johnson County Museum is open Monday - Saturday, 9:00 AM - 4:30 PM. Admission is $6 for adults, $5 for seniors/students/military, and $4 for children.
