    Went with a 5 and 6 year old. They were really happy with the restaurant setting and the stage where they sang and danced  more »

    A lot of fun for younger kids. There’s something for different personalities and different interests.  more »

    We had our son's 7th birthday party here. I was worried 7 may be a little too old, but it was perfect. All the kids had a blast. You have a party room for cake and presents and the tables are set up a...  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.

    My 4 yr old loved It! Three stories of fun and exhibits of interaction. Everyone can enjoy, but best for kids 12 and under.

    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.

    Two hours go by so quick. Definitely returning so the children can explore even more

    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?
