The Peoria PlayHouse Children's Museum opened in June 2015. Built by the Junior League of Peoria, in collaboration with Peoria Park District and Peoria Zoological Society, The PlayHouse is a hands-on, interactive children’s museum. It is located in the historic Glen Oak Park Pavilion building within Glen Oak Park, adjacent to Peoria Zoo and near Luthy Botanical Garden, providing a full-day destination for families in our region.

OUR CORE VALUES:

We believe that a kid can be anything they want to be. They need only the opportunity and inspiration to imagine, practice, and become.

We believe that we are more effective when we collaborate with others. Collaboration with individuals and organizations throughout and beyond Peoria allows us to effectively support families and achieve shared goals.

We believe that the PlayHouse is for all children and families, regardless of income, abilities, or background.

We believe that we are catalysts. A good museum experience sparks experiences and ideas that happen after and between visits. Who knows where a visit to the PlayHouse might lead?

  • It was very good for kids. Real fun and time engaged activities. There is a small park near by and Peoria Zoo in walkable distance. An entire day can be spent in this location. Good to come with family and friends. There is a small lake near by too.....
  • I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to the Peoria PlayHouse. This is the perfect interactive museum that reminded me of Discovery Depot in Galesburg. There are several exhibits to choose from, so you can find something to interest almost any child in your company. Our favorites were the WaterWorks and the Farm exhibits.
