Discovery Museum is a hands-on museum that blends science, nature, and play, inspiring families to explore and learn together. The museum and its Discovery Woods accessible outdoor nature playscape and 550 sf treehouse blend the best of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) learning on a beautiful 4.5-acre campus abutting 180 acres of conservation land in Acton, MA, about 20 miles west of Boston.
The Especially for Me event series offers dedicated hours and free museum admission for families facing developmental challenges. During these events, we offer accommodations that increase access to museum exhibits and provide an opportunity for families to network with one another in an understanding environment.
The event titles indicate the types of accommodations provided, but any family that would benefit from the accommodations is welcome.
In 2019 we will offer 25 Especially for Me events, including:
Mornings for families with deaf, hard of hearing, and KODA infants and toddlers
Evenings for families with deaf, hard of hearing, and KODA children
Visually impaired family evenings
All are events free, but require pre-registration online through the links below, so that we can plan appropriately. Registration links go live about 6 weeks prior to each event.
