Best Cultural Attraction

Peoria Riverfront Museum

The Peoria Riverfront Museum has claimed this title for five years running, underscoring its significance as a regional institution and the only multidisciplinary museum of its kind in the nation. With its four pillars of art, science, history and achievement, the Smithsonian-affiliated museum inspires lifelong learning through major exhibitions and interactive galleries, a dome planetarium, giant screen theater, educational programming and much more.

“People in a truly great community work hard to inspire each other—and find every way to be inspired by each other,” says John Morris, president and CEO. “The Peoria Riverfront Museum was created to help our community come together in this spirit, and we are so grateful to be seen again as the leading reflection of our community’s culture.”
