Summer Camp Season is Approaching!


Summer camps at Gilbert House Children's Museum utilize a hands-on, inquiry-based approach. Experienced educators guide all the learning opportunities. Our staff, our methods, and our children’s museum environment create the perfect combination for a fantastic summer camp experience. Camps are designed to be fun, creative, and original as we highlight the best of what the Museum has to offer.

We offer all-day Elementary Camps for Grades 1 - 4. We additionally offer morning and aftercare options for our camps. At least one week advance registration required for morning care and aftercare.

Legacy of Play


Legacy of Play was a motto started by A.C. Gilbert, that promotes learning through play! Legacy of Play Day is our opportunity to close the museum and offer children served by organizations helping those who are furthest from opportunity to enjoy a special day to play at Gilbert House.

Summer Block Party


Summer Block Party is the best way to kick off summer! It is a celebration and unique time to play at the museum that includes food and music.



Gilbert House for Grown-Ups


Gilbert House for Grown Ups is a celebration for all of the parents! To continue the importance of play throughout generations, we open the museum to adults to release their inner child. This event is for adults 21+ only; we serve adult beverages. This is a great opportunity for parents to meet other parents in the area and PLAY!

Halloween Re-Engineered provides children with an opportunity to safely trick-or-treat Gilbert House style. In the spirit of A. C. Gilbert himself, we use gizmos, gadgets, mechanisms, and devices to deliver treats to children.
