Host your child’s next birthday party at the Discovery Center! Now offering Mad Scientist Birthday Parties, each party includes fun experiments, games, goody bags, and decorations!
The Discovery Center provides the following materials for birthday parties:
Science-themed decorations, Tablecloths, Plates, Napkins, Plastic ware, and Goody bags (filled with 4-5 small trinkets).
Your birthday party reservation is for 2 hours in the Discovery Center building on Saturday starting at 11:00am.
An exhibit birthday party grants access into our second floor exhibit hall for all party guests. No food, drink, or bags are allowed in the exhibit. Please plan accordingly.
You and your guests are welcome to continue to use the exhibit after the reservation has ended, but you MUST clear the reserved room by 1:00pm.
During the 2 hour reservation, a private StarLab show is available for your party guests at 12:00pm.
Please be courteous and respectful of our employees and wrap up food, cake, and presents by 1:00pm so they have plenty of time to clean the room before the building closes.
**You may arrive up to an hour before (10:00am) your party begins to set up any additional decorations.
Each birthday party requires a $50.00 deposit to reserve the date and time of the party. Dates and times are NOT put onto our calendar until the $50.00 deposit has been received.
The $50.00 deposit is refunded after the birthday party date and is NOT taken off the final bill.
Parents/guardians MUST give us an accurate headcount within a WEEK of the birthday party date. This allows us to prepare enough materials for party attendees.
There must be at least 1 adult accompanying every 8 children. There will only be 1 Discovery Center employee present for all parties.
Birthday parties MUST be paid for on the day of the party, either before or after the party time.
