PLAN YOUR CHILD’S BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION AT THE DIMENNA CHILDREN’S HISTORY MUSEUM
Let our museum staff help you create a meaningful and memorable birthday for your child. Our basic parties challenge children to become history detectives in order to search for clues in fun scavenger hunts with prizes. Read about these hunts below or choose from several options to customize your party according to your child’s interests.
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.
The birthday child and guests wind their way through the exhibits in the DiMenna Children’s History Museum, looking for clues in a fun interactive hunt. Guests will then participate in a custom-themed art project in their private, decorated party space.
90 minutes or 2 hours; ideal for children ages 5-8
Older children will be challenged to search throughout the entire museum, following written clues in order to locate items in the collection. Small groups will work together to answer questions in this more elaborate hunt. An art project and decorated party space are also included in this package.
2 hours; ideal for children ages 9 and older
