Birthday Parties

Our birthday party specialists will take you and your guests on a science adventure with all the bells and whistles of a birthday to remember! Every party includes a private decorated room and a Birthday Guide. The guide is your personal host for the entire party and will bring the museum to life through storytelling and games! In the Touch and See Discovery Room, guests enjoy the ultimate hands-on experience by getting up close with live animals.
