The party room is available for additional decor and set up 15 minutes prior to the party start time, and there is no guarantee that the room will be available before then. Our team is here to assist you with the setup and breakdown of your party. If you choose to do additional decorations, we encourage you to keep those at a minimum so you are able to maximize your time enjoying the party and all of the special moments happening on the gallery floor. Our birthday party room is only equipped to hold a maximum of 36 people. Up to 30 of your guests are allowed into the museum for free (this includes you and the birthday kid), each additional guest above the count is $8 per person.

A deposit is required at time of reservation. Deposits are 100% refundable if the party is canceled within 2 weeks of the reservation date, otherwise you will be charged a $75 cancellation fee. Please note that you can reschedule your party anytime at no charge.

Great Explorations has a very strict NO drop-off policy. If a parent cannot stay to supervise their children for the duration of the party, their children will also not be able to stay. This rule is in place to safeguard the children and relieve any liability on the part of the birthday host. Your party could be terminated if the birthday host violates our drop-off policy.
