    All Birthday Party Rooms measure approximately 15 feet by 15 feet, and come with ample counter space; 8, 6’ x 2’ tables and 30 chairs. Party decorations cannot be hung or taped to white walls or cabinets. Many parties have opted to bring fun tablecloths and centerpieces to personalize their party room.

    Party Families are invited to park one (1) car in our Special Events lot for the duration of their birthday visit.

    Party Guests may use the Woodall Rogers Visitor Parking Lot, located off of Broom Street. Guests will pay as they leave the lot. Perot Museum Members can receive a 50% discount by speaking with our concierge at the Box Office.
