"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, or animals. Through a combination of activities in a private party room and out in our exciting exhibit halls, children will have a great celebration while learning about natural history! And, of course, there’s time before or after the party for guests to enjoy the whole museum.
Price: $275 members and Yale staff / $300 non-members
