Turbulent Twenties exhibit

The Turbulent Twenties

At the Johnson County Museum’s latest exhibit, The Turbulent Twenties, you can explore how how a modern, American society emerged in the 1920s.

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. 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.

Read more about the exhibit on JoCoHistory's blog post.
