Ready to book your party?

Fill out our party inquiry form or send a detailed email including the date, time, age of child, number of guests and preferred location (indoor or outdoor) for your party. Please allow 2 business days for a response.

After talking with you, BCM will send you a contract by email, and process your credit card deposit of $100. The remaining party balance is due the day of your party. Your date is not finalized or your party booked until BCM receives a signed contract and deposit. Parties must be booked at least three days in advance.

Food & Drink

Guests may bring their own food and non-alcoholic drinks. Food may be delivered to Brooklyn Children’s Museum. Choose from one of our local vendors 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 & Exchanges

Birthday parties may be rescheduled at no charge up to three days before the event. Parties rescheduled with less than three days’ notice will be charged a $25 rescheduling fee. BCM will make every effort to accommodate rescheduling; however, dates and times are subject to availability.

Birthday parties may be canceled up to ten days in advance of the party date with no penalty. Parties that are canceled with five to ten days’ notice will be charged a $50 cancellation fee. Parties cancelled with less than five days’ notice will be charged a $100 cancellation fee.

Health & Safety Protocols

All party guests at Brooklyn Children’s Museum must wear a mask. We regret that we cannot make exceptions to this policy at this time. Tables will be spaced six feet apart, and guests are expected to maintain distance. Guests are asked to use hand sanitizing stations frequently. Food and drink should be served in separate packaging whenever possible. Sharing food is strongly discouraged.
