There is so much to do around Boston that even after 5 years of trying to visit all the museums and playgrounds and beaches and forests and … there is still more to discover. We finally made it to the Discovery Museums in Acton. And LOVED it.
The Discovery Museums is comprised of two buildings on our 4-plus acre campus. At the Children’s Discovery Museum, younger children (toddlers through early grades) learn while they play. At the Science Discovery Museum, children and adults of all ages explore scientific concepts and hands-on creativity.
The Discovery Museums offers exciting programs for all ages. Check our Calendar for upcoming programs and events!
We spent all day. First in the Children’s part in a smaller house – this opened early and we had a thoroughly awesome time in the various rooms. Everything is put together really carefully and with love.
After a quick lunch on a bench, we went up the hill to the Science museum and spent the entire afternoon there. So much to do for every age. Truly superb. And the best bit is that a lot of public libraries have bought into their discount admission passes. We got 50% off admission, so it is definitely worth checking out.
