Visit the first Friday night of each month—every Friday night in summer!—with free admission 4:30 to 8:00pm. We gladly accept food donations for local pantries. Reservations required.
WCVB-TV's Chronicle profiled Discovery Museum as part of its Milestone series, in honor of our 40th anniversary. Our segment begins at 3:10.
We offer special free admission hours for families with children with an ASD, hearing or vision loss, sensory sensitivities and more, because we want every child to be able to visit.
Our 550-square foot, fully accessible treehouse and surrounding nature playscape will get you playing outside—12 months a year!
Great play is what every kid needs, and every kid deserves.
The Museum combines the best STEAM exhibits from our original two museums—for little kids, big kids, and adults—and much more!
Our philosophy starts with the simple belief that kids are capable of incredible things. Our job is to nurture that ability; our goal is to support kids’ healthy development. Play is how kids learn—here, it is in both a STEAM-rich environment and inviting outdoor experience.
Give the gift of Discovery!
Discovery Museum single-use admission passes make a wonderful gift! You can purchase online, in person, or over the phone and we will send them via U.S. Mail to you or your recipient (electronic passes are not available).
Early bird pricing ends May 31!
