Scouting at the Museum

Peoria Riverfront Museum is a great place for Scouts of all ages to explore art, science, history, and achievement. Our Scouting programs include dedicated merit badge workshops, group tours, and outreach programs.

Merit Badge Workshops

Every month there is a dedicated merit badge workshop for Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. It typically occurs on the third weekend of the month from Noon-3 pm. Actual timing, ticket price, and number of tickets available vary. Some badges have requirements that need to be completed prior to the workshop. Please read the event description carefully.

Group rates are available in advance for Scout groups attending the workshop together. For group rates for scout groups call 309.863.3048.
