Sensory-Friendly Afternoons at the Discovery Museum
177 Main Street (Route 27)
Acton, MA 01720
Come explore the accessible Discovery Museum and Discovery Woods. Sensory-Friendly Afternoons are all about inclusion. During these events the museum is open to the general public, but group visits and birthday parties are not scheduled, to avoid crowding and support access to exhibits.
Resources available to prepare for your visit include Story Guides to the Museum and Discovery Woods, as well a Sensory Guide. These are available both online and at our Admissions Desk. You might also visit the Exhibits section of our website, and review our Tips for Visiting. Please note that Discovery Woods is open year-round, but closes at dusk.
