The Peoria Riverfront Museum is following CDC recommendations and the State of Illinois "Stay at Home” mandate regarding COVID-19. As such, the Museum will be closed to the public until further notice.

We will remain flexible to all possibilities and will keep you as informed as possible of any change.

There will be no penalties for canceling your field trip, even up to the day of the trip. Future dated field trip planning is postponed.

Your health and the health of your students is our utmost concern at the Museum. Please feel free to reach out to Holly Johnson via email at if you have any further questions, comments, or concerns.
