In an encore of "The Business Beat," Steve D'Agostino interviews Neil Gordon, CEO of the Discovery Museum in Acton. They talk about learning through interactive discovery. This episode aired originally on January 6, 2019.

The mission of the Discovery Museum is to inspire enduring curiosity and love of learning through interactive discovery, hands-on inquiry, and scientific investigation. The Museum’s philosophy starts with the simple belief that kids are capable of incredible things - and the Museum’s job is to nurture that natural ability with a goal to support kids' healthy development. The Museum knows that to support kids it needs to support their parents - so its efforts are geared toward fostering family fun and celebrating the joy of learning together.

The Museum is a 501(c)3 charitable non-profit organization. For fiscal 2018, it posted $2.2 million in total revenue, a net gain of $100,000, and net assets of $6 million. The Museum has 20 full-time and 50 part-time employees.
