Science-themed birthday parties for kids turning 7–10 years old held in our private party rooms allows party guests to enjoy the hands-on activities as well as our galleries and exhibits.

Take the Stress Out of Birthday Party Planning

Holding your child's birthday party at NHMU is cool for kids and easy for you. Let us take care of the details while you and the children experience a truly memorable event. 

  • While we work to update all of our incredible party themes, we are currenlty offering our Science Lab party theme:
    • Unleash the scientist in your child! Our Science Lab party is bubbling over with fizzing and oozing hands-on fun. Create slime, experiment with chemical reactions, and create light wands. Test our hypothesis that your scientists will have a blast at this party. 
  • We provide:
    • A private decorated room, hands-on take-home activities, tableware for your refreshments, goody bags for each child, and knowledgeable party hosts to ensure a memorable time. Plus, day-of admission to the Museum for your guests.
  • You bring the refreshments  -- and the kids, of course!
