Wear your jeans, bring your curiosity, and join us for an exciting evening of hands-on fun!

At Discovery Gala, the Discovery Museum is just for grownups.  Guests will make music in the sound gallery, splash in the water room, send objects whirling through the 13-foot-tall “A-Mazing Airways,” and invent, create, and solve problems.  All in a day’s work in our recently renovated and totally fun space--recently honored as Boston magazine's Best of Boston® 2018 - Best Family-Friendly Museum, West!

The Art of Science is where scientific inquiry and creativity intersect. It’s a celebration of human ingenuity and imagination, a feast for the senses. At the Discovery Museum, it’s child’s play, and it’s what we’re all about.

What we do is great for kids, and we are committed to making it a reality for all kids. Last year, we served more than a quarter of our audience for free or at low cost through programs tailored to the unique needs of children with disabilities or limited financial means. That’s 45,000 people who, thanks to the generous support of our donors, experienced our hands-on, playful approach to learning without the barrier of cost.

Our accessible new spaces and free programs for families with children with disabilities were featured recently in a WCVB-TV Channel 5 news segment called "5 for Good." Watch the short piece here.

Our audience is growing by leaps and bounds, and when you come play at Discovery Gala, you will be helping us serve more children and families for free than ever. Our goal is $130,000--let’s make sure that every kid has access to the critical, early experiences in science, nature, and play that make a real difference. 

Come play with us and pass the fun forward!
