Blue Star discount - free to active service members and their families between Memorial Day and Labor Day.
With the help of over 75 volunteers, we maintain the buildings, care for the exhibits and build new ones, host our many happy visitors and guide many groups including lots of children and senior citizens, church groups and scouts.
The museum has benefited greatly by partnering with the Early Ford V8 Club which maintains a display that changes monthly, and with the Heart of Illinois Fire Enthusiasts and Collectors who have beautifully restored a 1931 Ahrens Fox Fire Truck which belonged to the Peoria Fire Department.
The Peoria Historical Society owns a number of items on display at the museum so they are also a partner organization.
Thanks to the Local Ford Dealers, one of the sponsors of the Retro Ford dealership display.
