On-site Birthday Parties & Specialty Group Programs

A variety of experiences and themes are available to celebrate your child’s birthday, for a small learning pod or group, or for your family to experience together! Please call or e-mail for available dates/times: 203.977.6542 or

Pricing, length, and party size vary by program. Most programs have a maximum of 15 people (all adults and children included). We are currently not able to offer flexibility on program maximums. Please ensure the chosen program will be a good fit for your group size. Click on the theme name to learn more.

The program fees include entrance to the museum for you and your specific number of guests and the educator-led program. If you have additional guests above your maximum, they must pay gate admission (unless an SM&NC member) and may not attend your program. Program fees also do not include private space for food or decorations. You are welcome to use a public picnic table space for cake or food if you wish but the program fees do not include private space rental.
