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 at http://bit.ly/EspeciallyforMe 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 and will not be open for evening events during the winter months.
Pre-registration required at http://bit.ly/ASDDec2019 as space is limited.

and funded by Corning Foundation, DCU for Kids, Foundation for Metrowest, The Nathaniel and Elizabeth P. Stevens Foundation, Acton-Boxborough United Way Youth in Philanthropy, Concord-Carlisle Community Chest, Nypro, Mass Cultural Council, and several Massachusetts Local Cultural Councils.
