Birthday Party Payments and Cancellations
Arrival, Departure, and Parking
Your party package includes admission for 10 children and 12 adults. Please note this includes all family members who will attend your party. We design our party packages with our room capacities in mind to provide you with the optimal party experience. Inviting additional guests is discouraged, however we will allow you to add up to 5 additional children for $10 per child and one additional adult. Due to room capacity, no more than 13 adults will be allowed in the party room at any given time.
Please inform the Birthday Party Coordinator if you plan to have additional guests. To guarantee that party resources are available for additional child guests, the Birthday Party Coordinator will need a minimum of five days’ notice. We ask that you indicate how you wish to handle additional guest admission fees.
Your invitation from the party family includes one adult and one child. If you:
- Plan on bringing children other than those specifically invited by the host family, you must pay admission for said child(ren) and must recognize that this child may not be able to participate in the party festivities unless there is available space in the party package.
- Plan on bringing additional adults, you must pay for that adult’s entry. Adult museum members may use their membership to gain free admission for extra adults in their party. Please be aware; however, that they may be asked to stand outside if the room capacity is reached.
- Museum members’ free entry does not apply to child party guests, as they require consumable resources outside of the scope of their membership.
Any party guests whose arrival occurs after a party has ended are allowed into the museum only at the discretion of the Manager On Duty and the host family.
Party guests are more than welcome to arrive when the museum opens and stay until the museum closes, to enjoy the full day of play that comes with their birthday invitation.
Food and Drink
Though the museum does provide themed decorations, host families are more than welcome to bring their own table decorations and paper goods to better fit their chosen theme. If you plan on bringing your own themed paper goods, please inform the Birthday Party Coordinator so that the museum’s themed decorations are not set up. There will be no discount in price for bringing your own paper goods.
