  • What are you doing to address health and safety concerns?

    In order to provide a safe and comfortable Birthday Party experience, our parties provide exclusive access to the Museum. Other than our Partyologists, you and your guests will be the only ones in the Museum during your party. As a part of our rigorous health and safety protocols, the Museum will be deep cleaned with CDC-approved disinfectant prior to your arrival. Additionally, all guests must comply with COVID-19 safety protocols, including health screenings upon entry, wearing masks for the duration of the party, and social distancing.

    The safety of our visitors is our top priority. As such, we are following the more stringent recommendations of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. All guests age 2 and older and required to wear a mask. No exceptions.
