Very pleased with our visit to the Wheels O'Time Museum. At first we thought it was a train museum, but it had much more to offer in farm machinery and cars.

I lived in the area for decades driving past the meusem often thinking "someday I should stop and take a look". I finally did last fall during a fall celebration where they had a bluegrass band playing inside. The place is much bigger that in looks with lots of Peoria historical info. Many antique cars and railroad pieces. There's an... More

The volunteers keep adding and adding to this quality museum. Especially fun for a rainy day when you can't be outside. Easily worth 1 1/2-2 hours. Not only do the displays bring back fun memories for adults but children love all the fun buttons to push and all the music and moving parts of tons of displays. Signs everywhere say... More

Great museum. So many different things to see in 4 buildings. And the cost was so reasonable!! Spend a few hours here I think you'll definitely find it worth your time.

This gem of a museum is wonderful! It consists of 4 buildings that you can go into. Old beautifully restored vehicles, firetrucks, trains, clocks, music boxes, many other things. If you enjoy the past - this is the place for you! Kids were having a great time - all displays are interactive at their height. The people who volunteer there... More

31 club members ranging in age from 23 to 86, along with 2 six year old kids thoroughly enjoyed the displays and hands on experiences at the museum. All "thumbs up" reviews from the members after the 3 hour experience. The diversity of exhibits was both entertaining and educational to a high degree to satisfy all who attended.

Well... on the first glance you could say "A lot of old items chaotical thrown together" but there is much more to say. We visited with 5 children in the age of 1 to 5 and they had a lot of fun playing with all this things. And yes, you are allowed and even asked to try out which I... More
