Support the PlayHouse

The Peoria PlayHouse Children's Museum provides children with the tools and inspiration they need to be explorers and creators of the world. Your donation helps us fulfill this mission, and welcome all children and families to our museum.

Two-thirds of the PlayHouse's income is earned through admissions, rentals, and other opportunities. The remaining one-third - over $200,000 per year - comes from generous supporters like you.
