Birthday Parties at the Museum

The Exploration Station...a children's museum is the perfect location for your next birthday party. Our add-on menu will customize any of our birthday party packages to suit your needs. And the best part is, there's no need to spend time at a ticket/prize counter, mess with tokens, or run party games and activities because our museum provides all the fun that your kids will need to make their day special!

All party packages include museum admission for 15 guests and the birthday child. The 15 guests include both children and adults.

There is a 1:5 adult to child ratio required for all parties. Adults are responsible for supervising children while they play/explore the museum.
