Discovery Museum is working with the MA Executive Office of Health and Human Services to offer COVID-19 vaccine clinics for ages 5 - adult. First, second, and booster shots will be available, free of charge. Appointments are required.
The staff of Transformative Healthcare Solutions are trained in meeting the sensory needs of all patients to ensure a positive experience for everyone.
Each person receiving a vaccine at the Museum will receive two free admission passes, to visit on the same day or a future day in the coming year.
Please note: If you plan on visiting the Museum, you will need separate advance ticket reservations through our website discoveryacton.org.Museum hours for July 1 and July 8 are 9am – 8pm with free admission after 4:30pm.
Join us for our first-ever Movie Night on our lawn—our Thank You to the community as we celebrate our 40th anniversary! Bring your lawn chairs and blankets and settle in for a fun, family movie. Before the movie starts, try some hands-on activities that explore how our pollinator friends, like bees and butterflies, help beautiful spring flowers bloom every year. Assemble a simple bug hotel for the insects that live in your neighborhood and try your hand at other bug-tastic activities! Then, enjoy our screening of “A Bug’s Life”—all while you enjoy frozen treats available from VeeBop’s Ice Cream truck!
This program is weather and conditions dependent. Rain date is Friday, June 24. Please note: the Discovery Museum building will be open for restroom use only.
Future STEM + Movie Nights:
FernGully on July 21 and Hidden Figures on August 11
Welcome to Sensory-Friendly Open Barnyard at Weir River Farm!
This program offers a dedicated hour for families with disabilities, providing a reduced number of guests and quieter sensory friendly environment. Any family that would benefit from a limited capacity visit is welcome.
During the Sensory-Friendly Open Barnyard series, you’ll have the opportunity to experience life on one of the last working farms on the South Shore. In the barnyard, meet our ponies, llama, and potbellied pig. Have a chance to interact with our goats, sheep, and chickens. See if you can find our herd of black and white belted Galloway cattle in their pastures. On your way down to the barnyard, enjoy the beautiful StoryWalk™. During this program, the barnyard is closed to the general public and headcount is limited. Pre-registration is required for this event. Children 2 and under are free. Please contact South Shore Engagement Manager, Elyssa Scheck, at email@example.com, with any questions or special requests.
