Please help us to bring to life this daylong destination for learning through play.

The Junior League of Peoria and Peoria Zoological Society have joined forces to build the Peoria PlayHouse Children’s Museum and expand Peoria Zoo.


Creating a daylong destination for learning through play that equips local kids with the tools to succeed. Join us in filling this critical need in our community. Together, we have the power to engage children’s minds, hearts and bodies like few other attractions in the area.



C'mon community,
