Birthday Parties

Welcome to the Home of Peabody Museum Birthday Parties!


Join us for a birthday party your child will remember at one of the premier university natural history museums in the world. Choose from party themes including Dinosaur Discovery, Minerals Rock!, Wildlife Safari, and Ancient Egypt Adventure.   Parties are priced at $350 ($325 for Museum members and Yale staff) and we offer deluxe options to make your party even more special.  Party times on Saturdays are 10:30am-12:00pm, 12:45-2:15pm, and 3:00-4:30pm.  Sunday party times are 12:45-2:15pm and 3:00-4:30pm.

All parties include:

  1. Exclusive use of our private Party Lab classroom for 90 minutes of staff led activities, as well as fifteen minutes before and after the party for set up and clean up. Activities include a themed natural history art project, treasure dig, hands on exploration of kid friendly specimens, exhibit tour, and time for refreshments at the end.  Parents provide refreshments and paper products.
