Best Cultural Attraction

Peoria Riverfront Museum The only multidisciplinary museum of its kind in the nation, the Peoria Riverfront Museum uses art, science, history and achievement to create extraordinary learning experiences for all ages and walks of life. From its dome planetarium and giant screen theater to multiple, interactive exhibition galleries and beyond, the Smithsonian-affiliated institution is integral to the cultural fabric of Greater Peoria—and recently celebrated its one-millionth visitor since opening in 2012.
