Summer events at Discovery Museums

The Discovery Museums complex on Main Street is preparing to start its summer schedule, and its Free Friday Fun series. Daily hours will begin on June 23, with the Children’s Discovery Museum open from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and the Science Discovery Museum open from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Both museums will be open for extended hours — from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. — with no admission charge every Friday beginning June 27 and continuing through Aug. 29. Participants at the free events will be encouraged to donate nonperishable food and household items for the Acton Food Pantry, Open Table of Concord, and Open Table of Maynard.
