Does your child love science, exciting hands-on activities and helping you cook in the kitchen? If so, Creative Discovery Museum has the perfect birthday party for you! The Museum can now be booked for exclusive themed children’s birthday parties!

Cooking Birthday Party

Cooking Birthday Parties will take place in the Museum’s Culinary Corner, a special area of the Museum that offers a unique, child-friendly cooking experience. Children will learn how to make individual mini pizzas and decorate cakes while wearing chef hats. Party guests will also get to go on a special photo scavenger hunt around the Museum.  

“No one does a birthday party like Creative Discovery Museum!” said Suzanne Ness, Senior Programs Manager at Creative Discovery Museum. “This unique cooking experience will add a twist to a well-established party venue. The Museum staff is unsurpassed in providing a birthday party the entire family can enjoy!”

Wizards and Dragons Party

Children enjoy a magical afternoon of science they'll never forget!  Culinary Corner will be transformed in to a magical place of learning and exploration as your child engages in the following science activities:

  • Wingardium Leviosa – Is it magic or science? Watch as a ping pong ball levitates! (We'll give you a hint: it's the Bernoulli principle).
  • Dragon Egg Jar Charm – Watch in amazement as an egg that doesn’t fit in the mouth of a jar is suddenly sucked in during this demonstration of the effects of cold and hot air.
  • Screaming Mandrake Balloons – Children will make their own screaming mandrake as they learn about the science of motion and sound.
  • Professor’s Orb – Create a crystal ball using dry ice. What they see in it will be only for them to fulfill.
  • Potions – Children will mix their own "magic potions" using the secret ingredients. The results are amazing!

After they travel through these experiences, they will decorate and enjoy cupcakes, open gifts, and then enjoy time in the museum.

Play Party

We know why you're really coming to the Museum. You want to play in the exhibits. Party guests will enjoy time in the Culinary Corner. They will decorate and eat cupcakes , open gifts, and then spend the remainder of their time playing in the Museum until 6 p.m..
