  • 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.  more »

  • Beautiful little museum focusing primarily on older cars and trains. Lots of fun exhibits on the America of days past if you can catch them on a time they're open. I remember coming frequently as a young child and loving it. Went again recently and it's still pretty cool. I will say, I'd forgotten about some of the exhibits, but most of them are just as well cared for as I remembered. Tons of neat pieces.
  • This would be one of the absolute coolest roadside gems I have been to so much to see everything from small trinkets two very rare cars in perfect restoration definitely recommend for the car enthusiast, law enforcement emergency service military enthusiasts, literally something for everyone trains planes cars fire trucks housewares. Part of the museum is the Ford building Outback they rotate a future car of the month when I was there it was the Mustangs 64 94 and 2016 must see... my dad and I went with my kids 10 9 + 4 and they were just amazed.
  • The Wheels of Time Museum has so many neat things. It's like stepping back into the past. Out front is a train engine and cars. Inside, well, more than you can imagine. Lots of old cars and equipment. Histotic Caterpillar engines and equipment. Large dioramas that explain basic science. There's lots to do and it is certainly worth a visit, especially if you're never been.
  • This museum is a great place to take a step back in time to an Era of long gone americana. They have many very informative and interactive exhibits that are entertaining for all ages. The staff of volunteers couldn't be more helpful and friendly. If your in the area for a visit this is a must see.
  • Need to update your winter closure on Google. We used google today and went only to find that you are closed. Looked nice from outside.
