  • We went through the Unlock Your Gnome Project. We had participated in an earlier survey of genetic traits; eyes, ears, hair, tongue, and gender. Our daughter was on the chart. Its a good place they the History of Peoria on display, an IMAX theater and Caterpillar Visitor Center is next to the Museum if you'd like to visit there.
  • Great museum, but the concessions stand was poorly stocked. Do you have pretzels and hummus? No. Do you have hamburgers? No. Do you have ketchup? No. I would return, but not to the concessions stand.
  • A great place to take the kids. The play area is really cool and the planetarium was the best I've ever been to.
  • My kids love Riverfront museum. They had so many things to do and to learn. Awesome time! Would definitely recommend goin.
  • This review is about the big screen theater only. I was impressed with the set up of the theater and the beautiful picture. The magnitude of the screen makes this theater a must visit for blockbuster movies.
