Children's Parties at The Bakken Museum

Bakken Birthday Parties

Host your child's next birthday celebration at The Bakken Museum!  Your child and their friends can celebrate and be entertained by one of our exciting science-themed birthday packages, complete with an educator-led activity, free time to explore the museum, and a special souvenir to take home.

What people are saying about Birthdays at The Bakken:

"Thank you so very much for hosting Avery's party this past Saturday! I was so impressed with the organization and activities and response to my last minute request. The kids at the party had an amazing time and couldn't believe 2 hours had passed when their parents returned. My daughter, in particular, would have stayed all day if the museum had stayed open longer. We are so fortunate to have such a gem in the neighborhood, and we will be regular visitors (and campers) now that we know you are there and know how wonderful you are. Thank you, truly, for everything! "
