Program Name:  Seeking the Good Life Tours

Who:  All Ages

When: Monday-Saturday from 10 a.m.  - 4:30 p.m.

Where: Johnson County Museum located at 6305 Lackman Road, Shawnee, KS 66217

What:  Seeking the Good Life tells the story of a city from a suburban perspective. Located adjacent to Kansas City, Missouri, Johnson County’s history has been entwined with that city since its beginnings. In the 1830s Johnson County was a home to Shawnee Indians and the missionaries who followed them. The exhibit studies the changing ideas of the "good life" over time, and challenges visitors to consider their own definitions of “the good life” and how they can be a part of solutions to today's challenges. This exhibit is located inside the Johnson County Museum. This is a self-guided tour.
