We make your little one’s big day awesome and easy. Every inch of this museum was designed for maximum fun, so awesome is a given. To make it easy, simply bring your birthday child. Super awesome. Super easy. Contact us today to get the bonanza started!
Birthdays here are a mix of rejoicing in your private Celebration Room (cake, presents, food from Acorn) and exploring the museum. The good news is that play time is unlimited. The better news is that how you plan your big day is up to you.

Celebrate first, explore later when everyone is cake-fueled and ready to run.
Late Afternoon (3:00 p.m.):
Explore and play in the museum first, then celebrate.
Celebrating in a big way? Enjoy a museum gallery to yourselves with our ultimate celebration – The Big Time Birthday Party.
