The Discovery Museums Free Admission on Summer Friday Nights

The Discovery Museums in Acton are pleased to announce the beginning of summer hours and their Free Friday Night Fun! program for 2014. Beginning Monday, June 23, both museums on the campus – Children’s Discovery Museum and Science Discovery Museum – will be open 7 days per week.  Children’s Discovery Museum will be open 9:00am to 4:30pm while Science Discovery Museum will be open10:00am to 4:30pm.

Free Friday Night Fun! begins Friday, June 27 and runs through August 29. Both museums will be open from 4:30pm to 8:30pm, with free admission.  Families are invited to picnic under the stars and enjoy the museums and outdoor exhibits at night.

A performance from the Maynard Community Band will begin at 7:00pm during the first of these free Friday nights on June 27. Visitors are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets to enjoy the outdoor entertainment on the museums’ grounds.

Free Friday Night Fun! is an important component of the Museums’ Open Door Connections program, which provides opportunities for those who face a variety of barriers—financial, developmental, or cultural—to experience the museums.

The Discovery Museums will collect non-perishable food donations for the Acton Food Pantry, Open Table of Concord and Open Table of Maynard as part of this special promotion.  While not required for admission, donations are greatly appreciated. The food pantries are in great need of shelf-stable foods for their guests, such as: canned meats; cooking oil; low salt vegetables, soup and chili; coffee and tea; breakfast cereal; canned fruit; jams and jellies; peanut butter.
