Have your child's birthday party at the Whaling Museum!
2014 Party themes and cost
(click for PDF)
The museum hosts unique learning birthday parties throughout the year where guests play games, have fun with crafts, and rotate through activity stations, all lead by a seasoned museum educator. We run only one event in the museum at a time, and we try to cover as many elements of the party as we can to make the day fun and easy for you.
Go on a treasure hunt in a Pirate Party, decorate tiaras in a Mermaid Party, or hunt for real shark tooth fossils in a Shark Party - and more! Let us know what we can do to make your child's party as unique and special as we can.
Our birthday parties cover everything but the food, including printed personalized invitations, goody bags, all tableware, craft projects, and all activities. The birthday child chooses the craft project for the day.
Feel free to mix and match among our party themes, and we will gladly customize our birthday themes for you. Parties take place on weekends and weekday afternoons.
Questions and Bookings:
The first step is to fill out our Birthday Party Inquiry Form. That gives us a way for us to see exactly what kind of party you are looking for, and which dates work for you.

Museum Gallery Rentals
The museum is proud to serve as a community resource for rentals for cocktail events, seated meals, professional development meetings, presentations, and even baby showers!
The museum can seat 40 adults to a sit-down meal, or 80 adults to a cocktail event (more with a tent). Each event's requirements are different, and we are happy to work with you in what you need for a successful event. In general, you supply the food; the museum provides options for set-up, cleanup, activities, and table decor. Pricing is dependent on the length of your event, number of guests, and choice of weekend/weekday. Give us a ring and let us know what your vision is!
Our staff take great pride in the events we run, and we look forward to hosting you and making you and your guests completely happy.
Please call Katie, our Business Manager, at (631) 367-3418 x10 or email@example.com to find out more about renting our space. Please provide as many details as possible so we can provide you with an accurate quote.
