  • We went to the museum after Special Olympics to cool the kids off and give them some down time. They let us in free because we were athletes....which was very nice of them. The kids enjoyed it. But it...  more »
  • We have taken our grandkids here numerous times, and each time they had a blast. It is very informative for the kids, and I even learned a thing or two.  more »
  • We stopped here at 5 p.m. on a Thursday for a few hours of active fun while driving from St Louis to Chicago. Free 3-hour parking across the train tracks to the back (south?) of the museum. Very simil...  more »

  • I went with my two kids, adged 6 and 9, and there was a huge debate on what to do. Kids aren't allowed to walk around by themselves, making a major problem. At first I tried just sitting in the lobby so I wouldn't have to spend a extra $7 on me. My kids were escorted to me and they said I have to buy a admission or we all have to leave. When I got in, my 9 year old went to the gift shop and I stayed I with my 6 year old by the Kid's Medical Center. My 9 year old was escorted to me and they said we have to leave. Would not return.
  • The CDM gives you 50% off if you are a Peoria playhouse member. There were many activities that had staff to watch over like the art, innovation, and painting. I have 3 kids ages 1, 4, and 6. My older boys loved the two floor climbing area and the painting on the wall. My 1 year old was a bit more high maintenance and I felt I had to helicopter around him to keep him safe and entertained. That said, the 1 year old thoroughly enjoyed himself. The staff was so smiley, helpful, and nice to me and my boys.
  • Great place for young children, but lousy parking. Absolutely no place for bus parking that is close. They really need to think about that and come up with something, maybe a shuttle?
  • We've been members at CDM for a couple years and really enjoy what it has to offer. We love visiting on Thursday nights when parking is free at the Uptown Station and the museum is less crowded. It is one of our favorite parts of the community.
  • An AMAZING stop for families with kids of all ages. Three stories of interactive displays. So much fun for kids AND parents.
