Birthdays at the Museum
All ages
Perot Museum
Children and Teens

It’s more than a party.
It’s a birthday slice of discovery.

Celebrate another year of discovery with a birthday experience at the Perot Museum! Birthday events are available Saturdays and Sundays year-round, featuring a broad range of hands-on explorations to get everyone involved.

What our party-goers have to say: 

"I have four children and have been throwing birthday parties for them for more than 15 years. I didn't have to worry about the stress of hosting! This is by far the easiest party we have had! Thank you for your help!" 

"We love the Perot Museum and were thrilled to have our son's 10th birthday party there. It was very special. The staff were friendly and helpful and the room was big and inviting."

Reserve your party today to have your own scientifically awesome experience!
