  • AC Gilberts Discovery Village
    A.C. Gilbert's Discovery Village is a hands-on children's museum spread across three historical houses that reside in Riverfront Park. It is named after A.C. Gilbert, a Salem native, toy magnate, and inventor of the Erector Set. True to a life spent creating educational and scientific toys, his namesake museum provides a place for kids to interact with exhibits that encourage play and provoke thought. From a giant model of an animal cell to a faux paleontological dig full of ancient bones to musical instruments like a South American rainwheel, the museum's stations encompass a number of scientific and cultural disciplines—though little ones might only interpret each activity as fun. Furthermore, youth can heal stuffed animals in the Village Vet Room or scale a 52-foot edifice that is one of the world's largest Erector Set towers, boasting three slides and a maze.

  • Imagine Play
    A bright-yellow biplane soars through the sky, performs barrel rolls, and loops into the clouds—all while staying 10 inches above the ground. Across Imagine: Play's rooms and halls, a treasure trove of toy vehicles and themed areas lets children stretch their imaginations. Each pintsize visitor can transform into the captain of a 20-foot tugboat, conduct a 12-foot blue locomotive, or plunge down a bounce house's slides. Elsewhere, 50 puppets act out plays, and a 20-foot-long chalkboard hallway transforms into whatever scene springs from kids' minds. Imagine: Play's creators built each of these areas with low walls, which allow parents to keep an eye on kids from nearby picnic tables. The staff members' creativity also stretches to themed upstairs party rooms. Here, they hang colorful backdrops that can teleport guests into a jungle, a tropical beach, or a medieval-castle scene.

  • Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum
    Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum preserves one of mankind's greatest achievements: harnessing the power of flight. Across its open hangars sprawl aircraft of every era—from replicas of the earliest Wright Flyers to an SR-71 Blackbird capable of speeds greater than 2,000 miles per hour. There's also an indoor water park, just like the one the Wright Brothers dreamed of installing in their surf shop some day. Size: massive 120,000 square feet, with hangars filled with civilian and military planes; NASA space craft; a large-format digital 3D theater; and the 70,000 square foot indoor Wings & Wings Waterpark Eye Catcher: a real Boeing 747 aircraft that sits on the Waterpark's roof, and even has a slide built into its structure Crown Jewel: The Spruce Goose. Famously designed by Howard Hughes, this WWII-era plane was built out of wood due to wartime restrictions on metals. It flew only once. Don't Miss: an unflown capsule from the Mercury space program Hidden Gem: the firearms collection, where 18 cases break from aviation to showcase weaponry from every era of the American military Hands-On Activities: In addition to slides and leisure pools, the Waterpark houses more than 20 interactive educational exhibits focused on the power of water. Pro Tip: Tell the Museum staff how long you want to spend in the Museum; they'll help you plan an itinerary that best fits your schedule. Special Program: guided tours by volunteer docents, many of whom are veteran pilots
