Legacy of Play Day


The Gilbert House Children’s Museum will host its third annual Legacy of Play Day on Monday, February 18th, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  Gilbert House Children’s Museum is named after Salem-born A.C. Gilbert.  Our namesake Gilbert was a scholar, inventor, Olympic athlete, gold medalist, entrepreneur, magician, and so much more.  He left the world a legacy of play through a variety of inventions including magic sets, toys, and his famous Erector Sets.

The Legacy of Play Day is a FREE admission day at Gilbert House!  We are honoring A.C. Gilbert’s spirit of tinkering, engagement, and discovery by offering a day of exploration at Gilbert House for all, along with a collection of Discovery Booths to enjoy. We hope this event will celebrate and contribute to building and strengthening a culture of innovation and play in our community.

Join us with your friends and family!
