COVID-19 Membership Updates:

During the time we have been closed we have kept your memberships active so that you were still able to access reciprocal partners who were able to have areas of their facilities open. We have not taken any of the time you had on your membership away from you. When the museum opens for our fifth phase of reopening on April 9th, your membership will come off pause and you will have the same amount of time left on your membership as when we closed.

Watch our social media and newsletters for your continued Gilbert House at Home member newsletter and activities.
