The museum is home to the society's more than 10,000 historic artifacts that portray the diverse and vibrant heritage of Johnson county, from the Meskwaki to early settlers to contemporary times.
Many of these items- from an authentic handcart commemorating the Mormon's historic trek westwards from Iowa to a replica of the beloved Blue Top Motel to a 19th century millstone- are on display in permanent and rotating exhibits.
Kids 12 and under are admitted for free.
In addition to the JCHS Museum, the society also manages and interprets three historic sites: Plum Grove Historic Home, the 1855 Johnson County Poor Farm & Asylum and the 1876 Coralville Schoolhouse. Check out their web site for details.
