Johnson County Museum
The KidScape at the Johnson County Museum is a fully-immersive, interactive history experience for kids.

The Johnson County Museum is turning itself into a low-sensory environment on the first Monday of every month.

The new limited capacity sessions are designed to better accommodate children with sensory processing differences and Autism Spectrum Disorders.

The Johnson County Museum is sensory friendly on the first Monday of the month (unless closed for a holiday), from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. More information is online.

When I host Up To Date each morning at 9 a.m., my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers. My email is steve@kcur.org.
As Up To Date’s associate producer, I construct daily conversations that give our listeners context to the issues of our time. I strive to provide a platform that holds those in power accountable, while also spotlighting the voices of Kansas City’s creatives and visionaries that may otherwise go unheard. Email me at zach@kcur.org.
Whether it’s something happening right now or something that happened 100 years ago, some stories don’t fit in the short few minutes of a newscast. As a podcast producer at KCUR, I help investigate questions and local curiosities in a way that brings listeners along for adventures with plot twists and thought-provoking ideas. Sometimes there isn’t an easy answer in the end – but my hope is that we all leave with a greater understanding of the city we live in.
