Any family who can benefit from a limited capacity visit is welcome at the Especially for Me events.

The Discovery Museum in Acton announced the dates of their Especially for Me events for the remainder of 2021. The events provide free admission for families with children on the autism spectrum, with hearing or vision loss, or facing other developmental challenges, during dedicated hours when the Museum is closed to the general public and building capacity is limited.

Discovery Museum is ADA-compliant and all exhibits are accessible, designed according to Universal Design principles to be both aesthetically pleasing and useable by the widest possible range of people, without regards to age or ability. During these events, accommodations are offered that increase access to Museum exhibits.

Any family who can benefit from a limited capacity visit is welcome at these events. A medical diagnosis is not required.

All Especially for Me events are free to attend, but preregistration is required online at www.discoveryacton.org/efm as space is limited.
