Birthday Parties

 

BECOME A HISTORY DETECTIVE ON YOUR BIRTHDAY!

Let our Museum staff help you create a meaningful and memorable birthday for your child. Our History Parties challenge children to search for facts, images, and objects in the Museum in fun, custom-designed scavenger hunts with prizes. Partygoers enjoy the use of a private party room where they engage in a choice of crafts, such as creating their own election button or decorating a treasure box with images of people, maps and documents from American history.

Available for summer 2017, sign up for a special-exhibition-themed party, including Eloise at the Museum! Starting in July, your birthday child and guests will visit the terrific special exhibition Eloise at the Museum . These are only available for a limited time, so call today or download a brochure for more information.

Parties are available for Members of the New-York Historical Society at the Family Level ($150) or above and all have the use of a private entertainment space in which to celebrate with the birthday child.
