The Gilbert House Children’s Museum is hosting its second annual Legacy of Play Day on Monday, February 19th, 2018 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Gilbert House Children’s Museum is named after Salem-born A.C. Gilbert. Gilbert was a scholar, inventor, Olympic athlete and 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, which is what inspired our 20,000 ft² Outdoor Discovery Area.
The Legacy of Play Day is a FREE admission day at Gilbert House Children’s Museum and 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.
