Discovery Awaits in Acton
This incredibly cool place was built for the scientist in everyone, from baby to gramps. The Discovery Museums are two separate science museums located on over four acres. The Children’s Discovery Museum is for toddlers through early elementary grades. Here, children can learn while playing in the three floors of wild fun. Each room in the historic Victorian-style house offers hands-on surprises around every corner. Let Junior surround herself with bubble walls, pull a lobster trap, try and cross a wobbly bridge, or be the constructor on a train. There are endless opportunities here for giggle-inducing, creativity-sparking fun. At the Science Discovery Museum, children (and adults) of all ages slip on their imaginary lab coats and become scientists as they explore sciences through hand on activities that will get those creative juices and curiosity going. Young scientists can capture their shadows on a phosphorescent wall, move clouds, learn through using a slinky, or create music with the museum’s awesome “slap-a-phone.” You’ll leave the Discovery Museums planning your next trip back!
