The Museums Kick Off Twelve Months of Special Programs and Events

Master Plan for Expansion Underway 

The Discovery Museums in Acton announced today a 12-month celebration of its 30th anniversary marked by special programs, events, discounts and prizes.

  • The celebration kicked off with a two-day party for dinosaur mascot Bessie’s 30th birthday in June, attended by more than 1,000 people.
  • This fall the Museums will hold an anniversary gala hosted by NPR’s Robin Young, and during a week in September will roll back to the 1982 admission price of $2.00.
  • There will be a special members-only event tied to a new science exhibit opening in December, and on the 30th of each month all visitors can be entered into a drawing for a free membership.
  • Free admission will be offered on Friday nights all summer and the first Friday of every month.

A master plan for expansion of the facilities on the 4.5-acre campus is currently underway, with objectives to expand permanent exhibit space, create a gallery space for traveling exhibits and public events, and build-out the Museums’ outdoor education space.
