Provide an unforgettable birthday at the Museum for your children and their friends! Birthday parties at the Museum are 1.5 hours long and for children ages 3-6. There is one morning (11am-12:30pm) and one afternoon (2pm-3:30pm) slot available on select Saturdays in the fall. Parties are a National Building Museum membership benefit and are available only to Family-level members or higher. 

Each 1.5-hour party includes a t-shirt for the birthday child to take home, goodie bags for all children, a hands-on craft activity, themed party hats, and free play time in a museum classroom. Participating children and six adults receive admission to the exhibits as part of the birthday party package. The cost is $350 for up to 15 children and $15 for each additional child, up to 20 children. Parties cannot exceed a maximum of 20 participating children. See Party Policies

Choose from one of three themes:  

All Aboard! Train Construction: Children become train engineers for the day. They investigate all kinds of trains, and design and construct their own train using a variety of craft materials. Child engineers don conductor hats and “drive” trains along the tracks on a colorful floor map. 

Brick Bonanza: Children put on construction hats and explore architecture as they design and construct their own buildings using thousands of LEGO® bricks. Families can choose between standard bricks or Duplo, based on the guest age range. 

Castles and Crowns: Children have a royally fun time investigating types of castles. Wearing their own crowns, each guest builds their dream castle, complete with towers, dragons, and gems.
