The Peoria Riverfront Museum is closed to the public effective March 14, 5 p.m. until further notice. We make this decision in light of the rapidly changing circumstances and the announcement of the first local case of COVID-19. We choose to exercise an abundance of caution and responsibility as a public space and trusted community institution. Closure includes galleries, Planetarium, Giant Screen Theater, and all related programs and events.
"Hidden Pacific" is a pioneering film that profiles some of the Pacific Ocean's most beautiful islands and marine national monuments — breathtaking places that will leave audiences with a deep-felt appreciation for the beauty of nature untouched by civilization. The storied histories of Palmyra, Midway and other atolls – from the WWII Pacific Theater to their present environmental recovery and ecological research initiatives – provide the platform from which the film explores a diversity of science and human stories.
"Hidden Pacific" is produced by Tandem Stills + Motion, in cooperation with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and affiliated organizations, which provided the filmmakers with unprecedented access to the bio-secure zones of the marine monuments.
