Address: 201 Washington Ave., North Haven, CT
The Greater New Haven area will be host for the 2023 A. C. Gilbert Heritage Society National Convention. The venue takes us “Back to Where It All Began,” with the convention show spotlighting the extraordinary educational toys manufactured by the A. C. Gilbert Company of New Haven, Conn. From 1909-1967, the company produced Magic Sets, Microscopes, Physics Sets, Erector Sets, Electrical Engineering Sets, Chemistry Sets, Telescopes, and even an Atomic Energy Lab — products that inspired generations of children in the fields of engineering and science.
The convention show takes place on Saturday, July 22, 2023 from 9:00a – 3:00p at our host hotel, the Best Western Plus North Haven (201 Washington Ave., North Haven, CT 06473). The show is free and open to the public. To learn more about the 2023 ACGHS National Convention, the A. C.
