The Johnson County Museum is part of the Arts and Heritage Center. In spring 2017, it will move to its new home. There, the 1950s All-Electric House will be included in the Shaping Johnson County: Pursuit of a Good Life exhibit. The museum also offers virtual content. Visitors can experience the house from a 1950s film.

This special exhibit has been in the works for more than a year. The staff of the museum has researched the topic and written a script for the special exhibit. The script is 24,000 words long, or nearly as long as the history of Johnson County. The museum consulted over 120 books and thousands of pages of primary source documents in writing the script. The exhibit will cover 2,000 square feet of museum wall space.

One of the largest artifacts in the museum's collection is a 1950s All-Electric House. Built as a model home in the 1950s, this home attracted more than 60,000 visitors during its inaugural year. It features an electric heat pump and a large-screen television. In addition, the house gets dressed up for the Christmas season.

The museum also features a large collection of 1950s holiday fashion. You can find bright green satin dresses and a red overcoat made of heavy silk satin. These fashionable outfits were popular with Kansas City women in the 1950s. The museum also hosts a digital archive of its photos. With more than 22,000 photos available on the website, the museum's archive offers a unique look at the past.

The Johnson County Museum is a wonderful way to experience the history of the area. It has many interactive areas, including an exhibition on 1950s Johnson County. One of the highlights of the museum is the 1950s All-Electric House. This fully restored 1950s house was moved to the museum from the KC metro area. The museum is open daily from 9am to 4pm, with closed hours from noon to 12:30.

The Johnson County Museum also hosts an annual Christmas tree exhibit, which is a must-see. The museum is open Tuesday through Friday from 9am to 3pm and on Saturdays from 10am to 3pm. It is also free to visitors. It is a wonderful place to visit during the holiday season. There are even holiday parties and concerts held throughout the year. Next

Patient Testimonials

Dr Don Sharnowski is a doctor who is above and beyond all other doctors! Probably his most outstanding quality is that he LISTENS to what his patients say. He is willing to explain things to his patients in terms they can understand. Dr Don treats his patients with wisdom, understanding, gentleness, care, encouragement and he is willing to "go the extra mile" to give his patients the proper treatment they need. He does not treat patients like they were on an assembly line or like he is rushing them out the door. Dr Don has fixed many of the problems I had at my first visit, one of which I had endured for 3 years. Dr Don was able to fix that problem in 2 weeks when others had not. Dr Don has also helped me loose 40 lbs so far. My total recovery is still an ongoing process, but should be a cinch with Dr Don's expert help! Thank you, Dr Don! You are an awesome answer to prayers!

Super Awesome Doctor in Overland Park, Kansas!! He really knows his stuff love his Holistic approach. Wish I lived closer so I could see him on the regular, at least we can chat on the regular! Very informative in all aspects of health! Five years ago this man took our health and turned it around 360 degrees. My son got ear infections very often. Both my boys have respiratory issues. My husband asthma and overweight. Myself aches and pains, specifically on my left side and joints. Well needless to say no more ear infections respiratory not nearly as often my husband is 80lbs less and never uses his inhaler . My sons ear infections...What ear infections...They are no longer! Thanks Dr. Don for all you do and have done!!

Dr Don Sharnowski is truly an amazing Doctor. He listens to his patients and treats in a very complete way. He is very knowledgeable because he never stops learning. He is a great communicator and will help you learn better ways to be healthy if you will actually do what he teaches.

Don (Dr Sharnowski) is truly one of a kind. He is warm, inviting and incredibly generous with his time, but also really knowledgeable about the body and everything within. You won't find crystal balls here. You'll find a super nice guy in sneakers who also sells farm fresh eggs at the counter. I went in expecting to get adjusted (and was scared, because I'd never seen a chiro before). Instead, what I experienced was someone who actually sat down and listened to my history, connected the dots between several ailments (instead of jumping to prescribe one drug apiece to treat each one), and explained things that no one had ever taken the time to do. I was there about my back specifically, but we talked about my whole health. Instead of just prescribing an anti inflammatory (which is what my other doc did), he explained why we get inflammation in our bodies, and how to help reduce it with what we eat. I've also been on thyroid medication for over 10 years, and he actually explained what the thyroid is, and what the drug I take is, and what it does. But not in a defensive or overly crunchy way. He just openly explained in a way that I could understand it. I highly recommend Don to anyone with a body who wants to feel better. His approach is approachably holistic. Just common sense, whole body-centered treatment.
