Children ages 12 and under can take advantage of the many hands-on options for a truly memorable birthday. Our party rooms can accommodate 20-40 guests for the big day! Birthday parties are fully customizable to match the interests of your child. Have a fun time in the Science Center, see a documentary in the Digital Cinema—or even choose a combination of the two!
All packages include access to one of Whitaker Center's private party rooms where your group can open presents, share snacks, play party games, and enjoy birthday cake! The rooms hold 20 - 40 guests comfortably and are equipped with lunch tables (w/ attached benches) for seating, as well as other tables for gifts and supplies. You may decorate the room how you like with your own decorations. We also encourage you to bring refreshments for the group to enjoy during your celebration. Enjoy!
Parties are 2 hours long. Parties that include a movie are 2 hours + movie.
