Parties at the Museum

Party packages are temporarily suspended due to COVID-19. However, we are offering private play sessions at the Museum. Your private play session gives you exclusive access to the Museum to play to celebrate a birthday or another occasion! These sessions are for groups of 35 people only for a two hour play time window. Cake can be served outside in the Wild Place only during your 2 hour play time, weather permitting (if inclement weather, consider passing out cupcakes to go at the end of your private play session).
