  • What a fun place for kids and adults to learn and play together. The little one loves coming here. It's not only fun for her, but I'm happy she's learning.
  • The staff and facility are top tier!!!! They truly go out of their way to make this place a safe and wonderful experience!!!! Although it can seem a bit pricey up front, there is SOOOOO much for children to see, create, and use their imaginations!!!!! My absolute favorite part of the experience is how dedicated the staff is! Thank you Gilbert House family and staff!!! I truly do my best to bring my family here at least once per year!
  • Spent 3.5 hours and son didn't want to go. Amazing outdoor space. Small, intimate play areas. Not that crowded on a Tuesday morning. Price better than Portland, plus free of omsi member. Pokestops nearby and a magic carp spot near the buildings with you can catch while kids playing. Loved it Next to McCall water front park, Pokemon stops galore, water feature, merry go round, play ground, and paddle boat out on River.
  • Great place to have fun whether you're into museums or into pokemon go. FIVE POKEMON STOPS NEXT TO THE GILBERT HOUSE!!! The museum is cool too. Great place for both kids and adults.
  • My kids have been going here for a few years and we love the location next to the river. Many activities for kids and they have special events as well as school.
