Coming up at Gilbert House Children's Museum

Invitation to Halloween Event

Gizmo Trick-or-Treat
October 31, 2020   1pm-3pm

Working with some of our local business partners, we are constructing safe and physically distanced candy delivery systems to help you start your Halloween fun. Put on your costumes and join the fun on the sidewalks around Gilbert House Children's Museum as candy is delivered to you by catapult, a ghost zipline, a candy pipeline and more.

Visual Scavenger Hunt
Throughout the month of October

Visit Salem Riverfront Park and take a stroll along the North and West sides of Gilbert House Children's Museum and see if you can spot the characters hidden in our windows. Once you have found them all, bring your completed checklist to the Parrish House (the green house facing Water St.) and ring the doorbell to receive a special treat. (Checklists may be turned in Monday-Friday, 9am to 4pm) Visual Scavenger Hunt
