Birthday Parties at the Science Center!

Want to have the entire museum to yourself? 

Due to current safety measures, your birthday party guests will be the only visitors in our exhibit hall at that time! Please follow the steps below to book a time for your party. Some high-touch and close-contact areas will be closed (Water Fountains, Planetarium, K-nex, Harmonograph, and Van De Graaff Generator).

To keep us all safe, please review our disclaimer before your visit!

Birthday parties: Saturday, August 1 and Sunday, August 2 from 1 - 5 PM

PHASE III: PUBLIC OPENING: starting August 8
Birthday parties: Saturdays and Sundays from 1 - 5 PM.

At a SD Discovery Center birthday party, we do the setup and pick up!

We provide a festively decorated area with balloons. Each guest gets a small favor and the birthday child gets a toy from our store. 

You are welcome to bring in your own food and kid friendly beverages regardless of whether you want to keep it simple with cake and punch or do a full blown pizza and pop lunch. Please provide their own plates, cups, and eating ware.

The fee includes up to 10 child guests plus the birthday child. Extra guests may be added at $5/child for non-members, $4/child for members.

Members: $50
Non-members: $65
