A Peoria Park District Facility

WELCOME! The Peoria PlayHouse Children's Museum provides children with the tools and inspiration they need to be explorers and creators of the world.

The Peoria PlayHouse Children’s Museum is thrilled to announce that, after a 14-month closure, the museum is reopening to the public on May 28, 2021. We are excited to welcome children and families back into the museum, where our six exhibits support children in becoming explorers and creators of the world through play. Learn more about our re-opening policies and ticketing here. 

Join children's museums across Illinois for educational, healthy play!
