Welcome to the home of Peabody Museum Birthday Parties!

Winter went out with a roar, but spring is finally here.  It's time to schedule your child’s spring birthday party at the Yale Peabody Museum!  Spring is a busy time at the Museum, so reserve your date now before it's gone.  We offer four different party themes (visit the Pick a Party” page) for a guaranteed fun time!


Crazy for dinosaurs?  Choose our Junior Paleontologist theme.  Intrigued by the pyramids, hieroglyphics and mummies?  Our Ancient Egypt party will excite them!  Attracted to the colors and shapes of beautiful minerals?  Our Rocks & Minerals party is just the thing!  Or maybe your child is a budding astronaut, fascinated with stars, galaxies and meteors.  We have a Space party that will send them into orbit!  All activities are tailored to your child’s age.


Our birthday parties are designed for children ages 4-10 and must be booked at least two weeks in advance.  Party times are available on Saturdays (10:30am; 12:45pm; 3:00 pm) and Sundays (12:45pm & 3:00 pm) and can accommodate up to 25 guests (children and adults).  


Your party includes:

  • 1 1/2 hours of a private party space in a museum classroom, with an energetic and friendly museum educator
  • Includes 60 minutes of themed games and activities
  • Same day admission to the Peabody Museum for all your party guests   

Don’t forget about our “Deluxe Options” that can be added to ANY party. We can even take care of your party goody bags!
