Montshire Museum of Science

Birthday Party @ the Montshire

We have Birthday Parties down to a Science!

Let the Montshire help you create a fun and memorable birthday party for your child. Reserve your party with us to get unlimited time to explore the Museum, and 2 hours of private access to a dedicated party room with chairs and tables.  You provide the cake, food and party decorations. All birthday parties at the museum must be reserved and coordinated with museum staff.


When:

Saturdays and Sundays

  • 10:00-12:00
  • 12:30-2:30
  • 3:00-5:00

Exact dates subject to availability. Available inventory is limited to three months at a time. *We will not be offering birthday parties the weekends of Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years*

Cost:

MONTSHIRE MEMBERS: $325 

NON-MEMBERS: $365

The reservation includes tickets for 20 people. Everyone needs a ticket to attend the party: birthday person, mother of the birthday person, best friend of the birthday person, children, adults, members and nonmembers (birthday party admission is not a benefit of membership). The only exception are children under 2--they do not need a ticket, bring as many as you like. Five additional admissions may be purchased for $17 each, up to a maximum of 25 total party people. We require one adult for every seven children at the party, and adults who drop off young party guests are welcome to join the party 15 minutes prior to the conclusion without needing a ticket.
