The Caterpillar Visitors Center is filled with dated films (2017, 2019), some machinery (which is beautiful) , and descriptions of products I had no idea Caterpillar manufactures. They had some antique Caterpillar equipment that was museum quality. They also had a Caterpillar time line that made the center a bit like a museum. Men seemed to love the simulators where they could try operatine a back hoe (and the like.) However, most of the exhibit was an advertisement for Caterpillar: how many salesmen and repairmen they have in the world...how they "just want to help people" ... how various customers love their Caterpillar customer representatives, etc. There is nothing wrong with advertising, and what the company advertises may well be true. Caterpillar should not have charged admission to give the visitor one ad after another.

Overall rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Time required:
1) One hour to rush through all exhibits and perhaps try one simulation, watched a couple of videos, and took some photos.
2) 2-3 hours is perhaps adequate for most visitors.
3) To look at everything thoroughly without rushing, you will need 5-6 hours.

Parking:
1) Street parking on Main St next to the museum but must either pay via App or phone.
2) There is an underground parking right underneath the visitor center where you will enter from Water St.

What I liked:
1) clean and organized facility from restrooms, lobby, gift shops, to exhibition floors.
2) Mid-size museum that's cover pretty much everything you should know about Caterpillar as a general public. You can confidently walk away with new knowledges and learning experiences from this visit.
3) Has variety in how information is communicated: hands on/do it yourself experience, touchscreen learning, to old fashion museum-like exhibits.
4) Most video clips they have are about 30 seconds to 2 minute long, which is great, and you can choose whatever topics that interests you the most or read them all! The amount of info each video clip provided is adequate.
5) They have staff on the floor to answer questions
6) There is at least one elevator available
7) Hand sanitizer readily available throughout the museum
8) Multiple live-sized Caterpillar equipment and parts

What they can do better:
1) Video clips inside the "Caterpillar Jobsite Theater" was malfunctioning, some were missing, and some were repetitive.
2) The water faucet in the restrooms were a bit harder to use.
Had these issues did not happen, this museum would have earned a 5 out of 5 rating.

Additional Info:
1) It's NOT free, please check the website to confirm admissions fees.
2) There isn't a cafe in the museum. There are plenty of restaurants/coffee shops nearby as it's in downtown Peoria and next to the waterfront.
3) It's right in the heart of downtown Peoria. There are other attractions nearby which you may consider. For example, there is another museum called Peoria Riverfront Museum next to it. Most people visit both. I personally haven't been there yet.

Caterpillar Visitors Center in Peoria IL is a perfect place for visitors to get proper knowledge and understanding of the achievements of Caterpillar, Inc. (founded in 1925), that nowadays has 110 manufacturing facilities, employing over 100,000 people world-wide. For this mega corporation, it all translates into $53,8 billion revenue and the net income of $6,09 billion - both numbers are for the year of 2019.

In Peoria metro area there are four major CAT plants , employing now about 12,000 people.

Opened in 2012, the impressive 50,000 sq. ft. Caterpillar Visitors Center presents the vast data on the development of the company and all its products -- machinery, engines, financial products -- using the printed , audio and video means of information, as well as the machinery exhibits, that can be "tested" and "practiced" by visitors on guided simulators. It is almost like a first-hand experience, operating an excavator!

Although Caterpillar Visitors Center is now temporarily closed for visitors, one can get the info through virtual tours, organized by the center.

Caterpillar Visitors Center certainly has the best location downtown -- close to the historic districts, the picturesque Riverfront, various businesses, attractions, hotels and restaurants. The scenic views from the elevated, exquisitely and tastefully landscaped grounds, where the center is located, are just wonderful.

Parking is ample, both onsite, on the streets, and along the attractive Riverfront part of the city.

We had hoped to visit this place due to its location in the company's headquarters.Unfortunately, like so many places, it was a covid casualty with no open date available when we were there.

This is a must see for big machinery aficionados! Lots of equipment here to experience and the Caterpillar story and displays are worth the time to thoroughly enjoy. Family and disability friendly.

One of the best “Earth Moving” equipment that I’ve experienced. By contrast I’ve visited the John Deere Visitors Center in nearby Quad Cities and there’s no comparison if your are a youngster or a youngster at heart.
The CAT experience includes a faux ride in the dump of the biggest hauler of them all comparable to a Disney theme park ride. On occasion visitors can make arrangements to visit the nearby Cat Proving grounds.

The museum is small, but my kids enjoyed trying out all of the equipment. My 6yo loved the LEGO section.

The simulators were pretty cool & even the adults in the group enjoyed it.

small museum that was definitely not worth the money, looked more like a showroom with sales people than a museum
