Birthday Party Information
What you'll get:
A one-of-a-kind military themed birthday party hosted by one of our educators that is fun, engaging, educational and supports a great cause.
When you arrive, you’ll be greeted in the main entrance where you will get a quick introduction to the museum. From there you will drop your belongings and refreshments in the birthday room that you will have to yourself.
The parties are held in the museum’s dedicated birthday room one at a time, so guests are free to enjoy their cake, open presents, and safely leave their belongings while they enjoy our programs.
Birthday party programming is 1.5 hours in length and includes three fun and interactive components. Following the scheduled program, the group is free to explore our NINE distinct museums and galleries for the remainder of the day.
What you'll need:
Two adults (other than the staff member) to accompany the party at all times.
Food and refreshments for your guests, ready to eat. Sorry there is no fridge or stove available.
Birthday Parties at The Military Museums are provided by The Military Museums Foundation (TMMF) and all proceeds support education programs provided by TMMF.
