Welcome to the Peoria PlayHouse Children's Museum!

Our Mission

The Peoria PlayHouse Children's Museum provides children with the tools and inspiration they need to be explorers and creators of the world. We do this in part through understanding, supporting, and promoting play in the fullest sense of the word, one that includes imagination and creativity.

Our history

Built by the Junior League of Peoria, in collaboration with Peoria Park District and Peoria Zoological Society, The Peoria 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.

PLAYHOUSE_CMYK PPD facilityWe 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?
