PEORIA (WEEK) — The Peoria Riverfront Museum is one of many local entertainment venues loosening their COVID-19 restrictions.
Museum president John Morris says foot traffic is picking up, and it is just in time, as the Bridge Phase has expanded capacity limits to 60%.
The increased capacity now allows the museum to welcome more than 2000 guests throughout the entire facility.
Morris says when it comes to mask-wearing, the museum will follow guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and loosen restrictions as permitted.
He says for now, the capacity increase is a huge step in the right direction.
“The museum is in the business of inspiring people and we have been closed 216 days of the last year, so I can’t tell you how excited we are about inspiring people even more,” Morris said.
Morris says the museum is unveiling its blockbuster T-Rex exhibit, which will open Memorial Day weekend.
