Benefits of Membership

Your membership during COVID-19 related closure to the public

All PlayHouse memberships are currently “frozen” as of March 16, 2020, and will remain frozen until we reopen. We value our relationship with our members and want to continue that relationship through this difficult time. While the museum is closed we continue to provide support to families.
We ask that you consider choosing to have your membership active while we are closed as a form of financial support to help us keep doing this work; to do this, please email us at playhouse@peoriaparks.org and let us know if you would like to choose this option. Visit our donate page for other ways to support the PlayHouse.
