Birthday Parties at Thanksgiving Point

Birthday Parties

Your child's birthday party at Thanksgiving Point is more than just a celebration, it's also a hands-on discovery experience that is fun and educational for the party guests. At Thanksgiving Point, we consider dirty hands to be a sure sign of a good time (sorry moms!) and with so many unique options and activities available, you're sure to leave with happy kids, which makes for happy parents.

Birthday parties must be scheduled 2 weeks in advance. You can request a birthday party online using the links below.  Because of the high volume of parties, please allow 48 hours for a response.

Museum of Ancient Life

Option A:

Discover the perfect birthday party at the Museum of Ancient Life! Make your next Birthday Party a T-Rex Adventure Party.
