Visual Scavenger Hunt
Throughout the month of November

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
