Summer Enrichment (and Fun) at Arcadia’s Gilb Museum!
June 25, 2019 – Youth ages 5 to 12 can learn what it’s like to do real scientific work–using the same tools and techniques museum researchers use–at the Gilb Museum of Arcadia Heritage in July by joining the Summer Enrichment Program. Packed with activities, demonstrations, and an up-close look at some cool highlights from the Gilb Museum artifacts collection, each week is a crash course in one of the many fields of science and history explored at the Museum.
