Junior Paleontologist's Birthday Party Package

Perfect for the "dino-maniac" in your life, age four and up. This exclusive package features a tour of the Museum with hands-on activities and the rental of a small private room. Tour highlights include: help chip away stone from a dinosaur bone, paint a fossil track cast to take home, and a live reptile encounter.

What is the Junior Paleontologist's Birthday Party package?

The two-hour long program consists of an hour-long Museum tour with hands-on demonstrations with short discussions about local fossils, rocks, and reptiles. Participants touch real and cast fossils, pet a snake, chip stone from dinosaur bone, paint a small cast of a dinosaur track, and more.

Following this tour, your party will retire to the rustic Discovery Outpost, where you have cake and open presents. During very cold weather, your party will take place inside the Museum. Please note the Museum does not provide food, decorations, or cold storage.

How do I schedule a party?

Birthday packages must be pre-scheduled two weeks prior to the desired date. A fee of $199 covers admission for up to 25 people (children age 3+ and adults), the tour, activities and craft, as well as the room rental. For additional guests, regular admission is charged.

Birthday Parties are available daily during hours of operation. Outside of operating hours, the fee is an additional $50 per hour.
