Reimagine an Era of Jazz and Fashion During The Turbulent Twenties

Explore how a modern, American society emerged in the 1920s at the Johnson County Museum’s latest exhibit, The Turbulent Twenties. The exhibit covers the time span between 1918 and 1929, and the long 1920s reveal a United States that was experiencing growing pains of sorts.

Americans were struggling to adapt to changing morality, changing immigrant populations, changing societal structures, and a changing position on the world stage. While consumerism was up, jazz was hot, and pop culture was all-consuming, beneath the surface of American society there were turbulent, darker aspects also at work.

The decade is often viewed as a time of roaring fun, prosperity, and good feeling. However, the museum's new exhibition focuses not just on “pop culture” favorites like Prohibition, the Jazz Age, and 1920s fashion, but delves into the darker, deeper elements.

Johnson County Museum’s mission is to engage children and adults in exploring our nationally recognized suburban story through collections, exhibitions, and programs in an iconic venue. Come find out why!
