“Better than expected!”
Review of 1950s All-Electric House - CLOSED

1950s All-Electric House
Attraction details
Reviewed October 25, 2012

This tour is a great value!! I liked seeing and hearing about the different "features" of the house (like the fake skylight...or the waist-high outlets). Very interesting & low cost! Definitely recommend it if you're in the area!

If you love all things retro, this is a must see.  For a very small fee, a tour guide takes you through a time capsule show house that GE had built as a "home of the future," with gadgets all over the house. Afterwards, there is a free museum you can visit to learn about the history of local Native American tribes, history of the area, and an interactive play area for kids to make puppet shows, design fashions, and play doctor.

I went for the Christmas display. The house was fun (If a little sparse) with the alminum tree and vintage toys. Well worth the visit.

I found this completely by accident, but it's so cool. It's in the Johnson County museum, which is free and has a great kid's play area.

This is the first all-electric house in the Kansas City area. It was a model home for the time and its history is fascinating and that it was saved is great for those that want to take the tour. It is at the Johnson County Museum. There is a small charge and tours are on the hour.
