Birthday Party FAQs

When can I have my child’s birthday party?

MSC Birthday Parties are scheduled on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays only. Minecraft Birthday Parties are available in the afternoon time slots on Saturdays only. Please call ahead for availability and reservations. Parties must be booked a minimum of 10 days in advance.

How many kids can I invite to my party?

Your party includes free Science Center admission for up to 12 children. Additional children may be added for $8.50 each, up to a maximum of 16. Add-on options (Hands-on Science and Minecraft) are limited to 12 children and are available only on Saturdays.

Can I invite adults, too?

Yes, we welcome adult guests at no charge. We recommend that you bring at least one adult for every 5 children to provide supervision during your Science Center experience.

What if I have to cancel or reschedule my party?

Birthday Parties may be canceled or rescheduled 14 or more days in advance with no penalty. MSC will retain 50% of the fee for any party canceled within 13 days of the scheduled date. We are unable to issue refunds for no-shows.

Where should my guests park?

Parking is free in the lot outside of our building.

Can I decorate the party room?

Decorations in the party room may only be hung with blue painter’s tape. Masking tape and tacks are not permitted, as they can cause damage to the walls. You are welcome to bring your own table decorations and balloons.

Does the Science Center provide plates and napkins?

If you have booked a Basic Birthday Party, you should provide your own paper goods. If you have booked a Best Birthday Party (Saturdays only), we will provide the plates, napkins, cups, and utensils for you. You are welcome to bring your own cake, have pizza delivered, or bring other refreshments; we just ask that all food and drink stay upstairs in the party room.

What is the role of the Party Coordinator?

The Best Birthday Party includes a Party Coordinator to help with set up and clean up. Your coordinator will also help to collect presents, leftover food, and other supplies that you wish to take home. The Party Coordinator is not there to cut the cake or serve the food. She/he is there to assist you with any questions or concerns, as well as facilitate any add-on activities you may have chosen. We want you to have a fun and relaxing party! While the Party Coordinator is there to help, please remember that we always defer to a parent for behavior correction, timing, etc. Please be sure to bring enough adults to provide supervision as your guests explore the Science Center.
