The Discovery Museums are the children's and science museums of Metrowest Boston, paired on a single campus in Acton, MA. The two museums--the Science Discovery Museum and the Children's Discovery Museum--serve families and schools from towns throughout the region, with a commitment to informal education that enhances classroom learning. The Discovery Museums combine manageable scale, convenient location and free parking to provide a fun and engaging experience where children and adults can discover their world together. The museums are open for free every Friday night during summer months, and the first Friday night of each month during the school year. We also offer free hours and programming for families with children on the Autism spectrum, and children who are deaf and hard of hearing. Please visit website for details.
