Frequently Asked Questions

Do you include food?

Yes! Our Silver and Gold packages include food for up to 20 children, with artisanal grilled cheese sandwiches from our caterer, Eat Morris, a 12” cake from local bakery Butter & Scotch in your choice of vanilla or chocolate, and utensils. Eat Morris also has additional add-on packages for adults and larger parties available for purchase for all packages. If you choose to bring your own food, we offer $50 off the price of Silver and Gold packages.

Is there a discount for Museum members?

Yes! Family through Family Premium members receive 5-15% off Silver and Gold packages. Not a member? Don’t worry! Let us know if you’ve become a member and we will apply the discount.

Do you include decorations?

The Party Room is built for parties! With colorful decals, streamers, and tablecloths included, some guests find it fine as is. The Studio and Visiting Exhibit Gallery are shared with other Museum programming, so you will have to bring your own decorations. If you want to bring decorations to any room, just let us know! Our party hosts are happy to help you set up 45 minutes before your party.

Can we add extra time? How about a facepainter?

We have add-ons including extra time in the Museum or party area, meet and greet sessions with our reptiles, facepainting, and more!

Can I suggest music?

Yes! For the celebration portion, we are happy to play any music that you want. We also have a general party playlist of pop music and oldies that many guests love!

Do we get free admission to the Museum?

Yes! Your whole party—kids and adults—will get access to the Museum for the entire day.

What can I do if I know I want to book the time, date, and space?

Please send a detailed email including:

  • What time and date you would like (Available times are 11am, 2pm, and 5pm for themed parties; 9am and 5pm for Totally Tots; and 10am and 11am for Party Hour)
  • Which package you would like (Party Hour, Silver, or Gold)

We will get back to you as soon as we can and let you know if that time is available.
