Birthday Parties

Your Child Gets Great Memories. You Get A Great Deal.

There’s no place else in Hampton Roads like the Children’s Museum for hosting a fantastic birthday celebration. The setting is amazing, the atmosphere is exciting and the memories we help you create will last forever.

You will receive a phone call once your reservation request has been received. During the call, we can answer any questions and schedule your party. A deposit will be required to confirm your reservation. After your deposit is received, you will receive a confirmation letter.

We recommend placing a request for a birthday party as early as possible to increase your chances of getting your preferred date.
