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.
