About Discovery Museum

Discovery Museum is a hands-on museum that the whole family can enjoy, and it combines science, nature, and play!
It is located 35 minutes outside of Boston, in Acton. You can enjoy the indoor exhibits, where kids will play, explore, and learn. You’ll find immersive experiences for the little ones and galleries of STEAM experiences for all ages! You will play and learn together with the many hands-on, low-tech, open-ended, and interactive indoor exhibits!
The outdoor part of the museum, Discovery Woods, will take you on a nature adventure. You’ll first find a huge treehouse created by DIY Network’s The Treehouse Guys! But that’s not all! Discovery Woods also features a rain garden, beaver lodges, conservation land, and so much more!
