Coming Summer 2016: Discovery Woods!

The Discovery Museums have broken ground on a $1.5M project to create Discovery Woods, an inclusive nature playscape with a nature path, outdoor exhibits, and a fully accessible treehouse. It is the first of a 3-phase project to fully renovate our campus, including an expansion of the Science Discovery Museum and an outdoor amphitheater. Read about the groundbreaking event and campaign announcement in The Boston Globe, The Beacon, The Sun. You read our full announcement here.

New and additional parking is now available! Parking lots have been reconfigured so please look for the directional signage.

The Discovery Museums Speaker Series

Wednesday, February 24, 2016, 6:30 to 8:30 PM

The New York Times columnist Ron Lieber joins us to discuss "The Opposite of Spoiled: Raising Kids Who Are Grounded, Generous, and Smart About Money" at The Fenn School in Concord, MA. Ron Lieber's presentation addresses practical questions about kids and money but also draws straight lines between our conversations about money and how we teach and imprint our values, whether we know we're doing it or not. This event is free, but space is limited. Click here to pre-register.
