Events and Activities

Updated for Jan/Feb

Currently the Peoria area is celebrating the opening of the new Riverfront Museum, the facility features something for the entire family, from the planetarium, the huge screen 3-D theater, the Street which shows the evolution of the city from its earliest days, Discovery Worlds where young visitors will enjoy discovery-based interactive gallery, and ever changing exhibits. Next door to the Museum is the new Caterpillar Visitors Center opened. As visitors enter the Center, they will settle into a theater seat in the bed of a life-size 797 Mining Truck. There they will learn about the people of Caterpillar and the sustainable progress Caterpillar® customers make possible all over the world, every day.​
