I went because I am on business in Peoria. For anybody interested in anything historical, this is a great stop for an afternoon. Just by myself, I easily spent 2 and a half hours there looking at everything. The Ford V8 motorclub exhibit is also...More

I was very impressed at how friendly and knowledgable the volunteers were. The history of each exhibit and especially of the fire fighters and how they restored the old fire truck made the visit much more interesting.

This is a sleeper. If you are passing through on I-74, if you have a few hours to spare and like "the old stuff", well worth your time. Not just cars. Peoria history, household items, etc., etc.

Great museum and well kept up to date overs its 35 years of operation. Displays well labeled, with several "What is This" picture display with multiple choice answers. Several music boxes throughout the museum that you can also play. Great, leisurely tour.
