Learning Through Creative Play

A.C. Gilbert created a tradition of play that has lasted for generations. At Gilbert House Children's Museum we are honored to carry on A.C. Gilbert's legacy of learning through creative play. We invite you to explore the many options we have for active learning through play at home and at the museum.

Play reservations are available for those who want to plan their play time ahead. Visit acgilbert.org/back-to-play/ to make your reservations to come and play anytime during our regular business hours (Tuesday-Saturday, 10am to 5pm).
