About Us:

The Peoria Riverfront Museum is a collaborative effort of eight organizations with nearly 500 years of combined experience educating, entertaining and supporting culture in the Peoria area.

For over 10 years, these entities worked tirelessly to bring to life a one-of-a-kind experience for the people of central Illinois and beyond. Their objectives were to provide interdisciplinary learning opportunities for people of all ages and, create a diverse, cultural campus in the heartland, and positively impact the region's economy.

On February 3, 2001, the Peoria Riverfront Museum Board of Directors approved the museum's mission: to inspire lifelong learning for all - connecting art, history, science and achievement through collections, exhibitions and programs.
