Birthday Parties

The Museum of Discovery is a great place to host your child’s next birthday party. We have a full range of services to make your party the best it can be.


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 chemistry and eat ice cream that was made in front of you with liquid (liquid nitrogen ice cream is an additional $30.)  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 for you!  Your guests will have the opportunity to explore your very own tinkering studio.  From building and testing aircrafts to creating your very own animated cartoons, our staff will lead your guests through a variety of activities designed to bring out their inner engineer.

Mad Scientist Party — Do you have your own little Mad Scientist at home? Encourage their genius with a Mad Scientist Birthday! 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 that really digs dinosaurs? Well, we’ve got the party for them. Your party will be hosted by one of our famous 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!
