Longtime Peoria museum planetarium curator retires

The Peoria Riverfront Museum has announced a new curator for its Planetarium.  The museum says Renae Kerrigan will replace retired Curator and Education Director, Sheldon Schafer.  

Schafer will participate at a ribbon cutting Saturday for the re-designed ‘Community Solar System’ program.  Kerrigan graduated from Bradley university majoring in Museum Education.  Schafer taught astronomy with more than 500-thousand school children over nearly 40 years at the Lakeview and Riverfront museums.
