Hours & Admission

Join us for Inspirational Content Daily! Found out more at Virtual Peoria Riverfront Museum!


IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING COVID-19! In the interest of visitor safety, we’re revising our public operations: 

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. We care deeply about our community and urge all of our members and friends to help provide informed leadership in promoting healthy and safe practices in the coming days and weeks. We plan to continue to provide uplifting digital content from museum through social media with a desire to inspire during a time when we may be more constrained.
