Even with a three month COVID closure and limited admission, we were still able to provide children and their grown ups with 720 hours of meaningful play in 2021. We are grateful for everyone who has supported us through donations and trusted us to be a safe place to spend time with your families. We invite you to join in our Day of Giving on February 15th as we honor A.C. Gilbert's birthday and his vision that all children should have opportunities to learn through creative play. #gilberthousechildrensmuseum #learningthroughcreativeplay #gilbert_house #acgilbert #dayofgiving #playtime #timetoplay ...
