The Peoria Riverfront Museum is the only multidisciplinary museum of its kind in the nation, using art, science, history and achievement to inspire confidence, lifelong learning and talent.

Since opening in 2012, the privately funded, Smithsonian-affiliated museum has quickly become a top cultural institution, providing more than one million experiences through major exhibitions, a permanent collection, interactive galleries, a dome planetarium, giant screen theater, and educational programming including curricula-related student visits.
