Themed Activities

We host birthday parties in our community room and kid’s gallery! Here are our current party themes.

Birthday guests become paleontologists, recovering bones hidden throughout the museum.  The birthday child carries the official backpack holding the found bones until all have been recovered.  The kids will then piece the puzzle back together and create the dinosaur they found.  Each party also includes various age appropriate crafts. Other activities include a game of Pin the Teeth on T-Rex.

Party guests will follow the clues that lead to the treasure! Other activities include a game of musical lily pads and princess themed crafts. Every prince or princess will leave with a crown!

These little superheroes in training will partake in a “laser” maze and play a game of capture the villain. This party includes various crafts to transform party guests into superheroes.

Birthday guests search for monster footprints hidden throughout the museum after making their very own monster slime. Each party also includes various age appropriate crafts. Other activities include a game of Pin the Eye on the monster.
