Party details

Our party rates are based on the number of children attending; however, the maximum number of children and adults per party is 30. 

Birthday parties may be arranged on Saturdays and Sundays. Saturday parties are held at 10:00 a.m. or 2:00 p.m. Sunday parties are held at 2:00 p.m.

You may bring cake, ice cream and refreshments to the party. You may have pizza delivered from one of the local pizzerias, or ask us about our list of preferred caterers. For the safety of our animals, we ask that you do not bring balloons, pinatas or straws to the party as these items can be hazardous to their health.

Please arrive 20 minutes early for your party. To be able to fit in all of the fun activities, please be on time! Guests will be directed to your party room when they arrive. Parties last for two hours, after which the room must be vacated; however, you and your guests are welcome to enjoy the museum and grounds afterwards.
