Featured Party Theme

Diggin' Dinosaurs
Party participants become young paleontologists and examine the fossilized teeth, horns and claws of some of their favorite dinosaurs. Party-goers will don lab coats and field hats and head up to our Extinction Hall. In true paleotological fashion, children will then dig up and assemble their own dinosaur skeleton as they venture into prehistoric times in this “dino-mite” birthday party.

Ice Cold Science!

Age 6-12
NEW! Experiment with some of the coolest stuff around – dry ice! Explore carbon dioxide, the phases of matter and what happens to materials in extreme cold!

Super Snooper

Age 6-12
NEW! There's a mystery at the Museum - can you help us solve it?! Step into the shoes of an official crime investigator!

Bubble Blast

Age 3-7
Go beyond the bubble basics! With the help of a BMS "Bubble-ologist", you and your guests will be creating, painting with and even standing in bubbles. Your next birthday party is sure to be popping fun!

Mad Scientist’s Lab

Age 6-12
Intrigued by messy fun and crazy concoctions? Let’s throw on lab coats and zany goggles and experiment with slimy science, static electricity, chemical reactions and more! You won’t forget all the hair-raising fun you’ll have at this electrifying party!

Artic Adventure

Age 3-7
NEW! Have some frosty fun and get up close and personal with some of our Arctic Animals! Be engaged with hands-on activities, a polar craft and a tour of our new Biodiversity Studio.

Pirate Science

Age 3-7
Aaaarrrr! Mateys will set out on an adventure through the museum to find treasure. Back in the party room, the junior pirates will make their own boat and learn how much “gold” their ship can hold. Participants then use physics to figure out how to hit a target.

Science Below Zero

Age 6-12
This is the “coolest” party ever! Experience the chilling effects of 320 degrees below zero liquid nitrogen and experiment with solids, liquids and gases in a really cool way. Become a molecule yourself and “perform” its phase changes with your friends. Watch in amazement as liquid nitrogen makes balloons “magically” deflate, rubber balls shatter, mist shoot high into the air, tennis balls launch from a cannon, and much more!
