Wheels O' Time Museum.

Wheels O' Time Museum

Cars, jukeboxes, a house made of steel -- if it's old and had something to do with Peoria, this museum probably has it. Look for a unique singing barbershop quartet of former Presidents.

Wheels O' Time Museum

Had a great time! Check on the Wheels O' Time Museum website to see if the blacksmith will be there. It took about 2.5-3 hours to go through.

Wheels O' Time Museum

Last summer (1997), I visited a museum called "Wheels Of Time" just north of Peoria. It has many, many old cars, as well as great collections of clocks, animated coin-operated bands (and a whole circus, if memory serves). It also has more antique jukeboxes than I've ever seen.
