This was a great little museum in its day but is now closed. Most of the museum's collections are now property of the Peoria Riverfront Museum which is much bigger and better.

The place closed and moved to the river front which was a bad idea. The city wasted money on the new museum and so did Caterpillar.

Formerly located on Lake, this was a great little museum, but leaves something to be desired now that it's moved to the riverfront. The museum is best for younger kids, but adults will likely be bored.

The sculptures outside were the best part of the visit. They were in the front and the rear of the museum displayed very well

Lakeview Museum was the best at it's former location on Lake Ave. Small building but had awesome exhibits and new exhibits rotated every couple of months. It's no longer there and has moved to the Riverfront where it's disappointing now. Very large building and less...More
