An additional honoree is $15, and there can be no more than two birthday honorees per party.

Your guests will be asked to sign in as they enter the Museum.

If some of your guests are already members of the Museum, they will not count toward the tally and must show their membership card when signing-in.

If you exceed the 20-25 mark, you will incur an $8.00 per extra child and/or $4.00 per extra adult charge that you pay at the end of your party.

Anyone over the age of 16 constitutes as an adult and anyone under the age of 12 months is free.

Child and adult admissions are not interchangeable.

Food & Beverage:

You may bring in your own food and beverage; however, all food and beverages must stay in the private party rooms.

If you’re planning on ordering anything such as pizza, sandwiches or cake, we ask that you DO NOT have it delivered to the Museum. 

We cannot offer any cold storage but you are welcome to bring an ice chest.

DO NOT bring any heating devices into the Museum, this includes chafing dishes, crock pots, microwaves or hot plates.

DO NOT bring alcoholic beverages.

DO NOT bring glassware.

Decorations & Entertainment:

Each room features a festive hand-painted mural so decorations should be kept to a minimum.

You may not tape or tie balloons, banners or decoration to any painted/finished surfaces, duct work or ceilings.

The Museum does not provide helium or staff for balloon inflation.

Balloon arches, piñatas, and additional tables are not allowed.

Costumed characters, magicians or outside entertainers are not allowed.

Staff Assistance:

A Museum staff member will be available to assist with transporting party supplies to and from the party room, PA announcements to gather guests, minimal set-up, cutting the cake and bagging gifts. You are the host(ess) of your own party and we do not have a strict schedule that we run for you. The staff member is not on hand to supervise your guests so all children must be accompanied by a parent or adult throughout the Museum for their safety and supervision.
