After talking with you, BCM will send you a contract by email, and process your credit card deposit of $150. The remaining balance will be charged before your party. Your date is not final or your party booked until BCM receives a signed contract and deposit. Parties must be booked at least 5 days in advance.

Food and Drink

Guests may bring their own food and non-alcoholic drinks. Food may be delivered to Brooklyn Children’s Museum. Choose from a local vendor or hire your own catering partner. To comply with BCM’s health policies, BCM staff members cannot set up or serve food at your event.

Refunds and Exchanges

Birthday parties may be rescheduled up to 30 days before the event at a cost of $50. BCM will make every effort to accommodate rescheduling; however, dates and times are subject to availability.

Birthday parties may be canceled up to 60 days in advance of the party date with no penalty or cost aside from the deposit. Parties that are canceled fewer than 60 days ahead will be issued a partial refund excluding the deposit as outlined in the contract.
