"Great party yesterday! My son had a wonderful time. I received great
feedback from parents and one child even said it was the best b-day he
had ever been to....!!"
"The party was wonderful. I cannot say enough great things about the instructors who took care of the kids and made my job a lot easier. All 18 children, including the birthday girl, had a fantastic time."
Parties at the Yale Peabody Museum are a great way to celebrate your child’s birthday while providing a memorable experience for adults and children alike. Each party is individual, based on the interests of the birthday boy or girl, be it dinosaurs, rocks and minerals, ancient Egypt, or a combination! We provide trained staff to lead the children through activities such as digging for shark teeth, hands-on exploration of our Peabody Cart collection of fossils, bones, rocks, and more, as well as a visit to one or more exhibit halls with a guided scavenger hunt. And, of course, there’s time before or after the party for a parent to explore the whole museum with their child.
Price: $250 members/$285 non-members (it's worth it to become a member!)
"The Yale students did an absolutely amazing job on Sunday. The parents
were very impressed, and the invitees had a blast. My son was thrilled
and so were we!"
"I was so pleased to see the kids doing smart inspiring things for a birthday party!"
