Birthday Party FAQ
All people attending the party are included in the guest count, including the birthday child and family, adults and infants. Guest capacity is varied based on location, and additional guests are $30/guest as capacity allows. Kindly note that museum membership and admission tickets are not valid for party admission.
We’ve got you covered! As the host, you have 30 minutes before and after the start and end times to load in and pack up your personal additions to the party. All museum-provided decor and supplies will be set up before your arrival, and the mess will be cleaned up for you when guests depart!
We have compiled a list of recommended vendors for your convenience here. Party hosts are responsible for arranging all food and beverage, including ice. You are welcome to bring outside food and beverage. Please note alcoholic beverages are not permitted during museum operating hours.
