It’s time to play and learn again at the Gilbert House Children’s Museum! The museum has reopened, with some changes due to the ongoing COVID pandemic.
Reservations are required, because the number of people who can visit at a time is limited. Time blocks are in two-hour increments, and tickets must be purchased online. Current hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday.
Learn more about the reopening, get updates, and buy tickets at acgilbert.org.
The museum is named after A.C. Gilbert, an entrepreneur, magician, Olympic athlete, and scholar. He invented the Erector Set, the inspiration behind the museum’s giant Erector set in the Outdoor Discovery Area.
The museum complex consists of three historic homes: the Gilbert House, Rockenfield House, and Parrish House. It’s located at 116 Marion Street SE next to Riverfront Park in Salem, Oregon.
