Birthday Parties

The Museum of Discovery is a great place to host a child’s birthday party. We have a full range of themes and services to make your party the ultimate in museum fun.


New! Frozen Science Party — Let it go and let it snow at this party!  We’ve got the ticket to create a magical and science-filled day for your little princess or prince.  Enjoy a frozen science demo with dry ice, make snow with the help of some cool chemistry and eat ice cream that is made in front of you using liquid nitrogen. (There is an additional $30 fee to include liquid nitrogen ice cream.)  This party is recommended for ages 3-7.

Tinkering Party — Create. Play. Build.  Is your child interested in how things work?  If so, a Tinkering Party is right for you!  Your guests will have the opportunity to explore their very own tinkering studio.  From building and testing aircraft to creating your very own animated cartoons, our staff will lead your guests through a variety of activities designed to unleash their inner engineer.

Mad Scientist Party — Do you have your own little Mad Scientist at home? Encourage their genius with a Mad Scientist Party! Your party will be hosted by one of our own Mad Scientists who will lead your guests through a variety of exciting experiments and activities. Have a bubbling, slimy and glowing good time at your own Mad Scientist Bash!

Safari Party — If you have an animal fan in the family, this is the party for them. Your party will be hosted by one of our own Animal Rescuers! From creepy and crawly to cuddly and cute your guests will meet the animal residents of the Museum of Discovery up close and personal. There will be lots of time for pictures and games as they meet a variety of members of the animal kingdom!

Dinosaur Adventure — Do you know someone who really digs dinosaurs? Well, we’ve got the party for them. Your party will be hosted by one of our fabulous Museum of Discovery Dinosaur Diggers who will take your guests on a great dinosaur adventure. Your budding paleontologists will learn about dinosaurs and get up close with real fossils from the age of the dinosaurs!
