The Peoria PlayHouse Children’s Museum is a hands-on, interactive space featuring six exhibits allowing children to play, explore, imagine, and create. Splash in the water table, mold with kinetic sand, send balls through wind tubes, make your own constructions in Real Tools, and more! The PlayHouse was created in collaboration with the Junior League of Peoria and Peoria Zoological Society, and opened in 2015. It is located in historic Glen Oak Park, near Peoria Zoo and Luthy Botanical Garden, providing a full-day destination for families in our region.
