birthdays at the museum

Birthday parties at The New Children’s Museum are a great way to celebrate your little one’s big day. 

We are currently making reservations for birthday parties beginning July 1, 2020. Once your requested date is confirmed, we will e-mail you and request a $100 deposit to hold the date and book your party. Should a prolonged museum closure impact your birthday party reservation, we will happily apply your $100 deposit to a future date.
