Learning Through Play

KidScape offers hours of fun for kids to explore and play. Located in a 3,500 square foot gallery, kids explore three unique communities and travel through time to learn about Johnson County’s past. Kid-directed and kid-friendly, KidScape is a great venue for kids to explore in a fun, safe environment, and learn while having fun!

The Communities

An 1870s farmstead introduces kids to life on the farm- tending animals, collecting eggs, gardening and house chores inside the farmhouse. And try your hand tending livestock and camping under a wagon

Time travel to an 1900s City to sell fruits and vegetables at the City Market, perform an original play at the City Theater, and teach lessons at the City School.

Suburbia springs to life  in the 1950s! Care for sick patients at the hospital, cook up burgers and fries at the diner, and build a house for a new suburban family. Even explore a park with a secret cave! 

Major funding for KidScape was provided by Mainstreet Credit Union, with additional support from a host of other supporters. We thank them all for their generous support of creating spaces for kids to learn and explore!
