Welcome to the Gilbert Historical Museum

2016 Quilt ShowThank your for visiting and our apologies that our website is currently down.  We are working as quickly as possible to get it up and running again. In the meantime here is some key information you might be looking for.


Located on the SW corner of Gilbert and Elliot Roads in the heart of downtown Gilbert, the Gilbert Historical Museum forms a vibrant cornerstone of the town’s Heritage District.

Our accessible location in the center of Gilbert means we sit at the heart of the East Valley; communities like Chandler, Mesa, Tempe and Sun Lakes are all within a short 20 minute drive.  In fact, just a couple of miles south of the US 60, we’re easy to get to from the entire Phoenix Metro area, so why not stop by?
