Explore the community of Gilbert and expand your trip to the museum! Gilbert Leadership Class XX created and installed 14 bronze plaques throughout the Heritage District to create a history walk which showcases many of the early buildings and businesses in our community. You can see one of those plaques on the front of our museum building which happens to be the only building in our town listed on the prestigious National Register of Historic Places. Maps are available at the museum front desk.
If you’re new to our community, just visiting, or if your family’s been here for generations, pay us a visit and we’ll make you feel at home. As you explore the halls and rooms of our history museum, you’ll discover that we have exhibits and activities for everyone; you can hop on a real Gilbert police motorcycle, examine the new Mortensen exhibit in our Military Room, or visit with the ladies at our live Quilting Bee.
So whether you’re planning a trip with the family, a group tour, or need meeting space for an event, you’ll discover that the Gilbert Museum is so much more than one of Gilbert’s favorite family attractions.
