Private birthday parties are available for all ages at the WOW. Parties are available year-round on weekends and on weekdays during June and July (except Tuesdays).
Your WOW Birthday Party package includes: General admission to the museum for up to 40 friends and family to explore, celebration of someone’s special day in our private party room, and a hands-on science experiment conducted by your very own WOW party scientist. Guests above the 40-person maximum will be charged $7 each. Due to Fire Marshall safety regulations, there is a hard limit of 50 people in the party room. Any other guests will have to remain in the main museum exhibit area. The museum offers 6-inch cake plates, napkins, cups, and plasticware if desired. The party family supplies any decorations, refreshments, cake and candles, goody bags, etc. as well as supervision for all children in attendance.
