New Peoria Riverfront Museum Exhibits

The Peoria Riverfront Museum is getting two new exhibits — both about health and the human body. ‘Body Worlds RX,’ an exhibition about life, offers an overview of what’s inside the human body. It shows different parts of the body in varying conditions and gives visitors a chance to reflect. The other exhibit called ‘Heart’ features the first-ever 4D model of a human heart, created by the OSF Jump Trading Simulation & Education Center. Both exhibits will be on display throughout the summer.

When: Starting May 13
