Children’s birthdays are wonderful holidays to celebrate. Why, who doesn’t love being around their best friends? Add in some fun games and a birthday cake with yummy frosting. Don’t forget the candles and wishes, the brightly-wrapped presents, and the party favors. But, let’s face it, planning and hosting a party takes some serious time−something we mums never seem to have enough of at the end of the day. Perhaps having a birthday party at a museum might be a win-win solution for you. After all, there are many benefits to this idea.
It’s fun and entertaining
One of the biggest benefits of having a birthday bash at a museum is watching your kids have fun with the interactive exhibits. There’s hands-on play areas and a whole museum to explore. The staff is specially trained to supervise and engage children of all ages.
Whether it’s a skeleton of an animal bigger than a school bus, a planetarium providing light shows of the magnificent solar system, or a display of 20th-century colorful artwork, children see new things. And they get to explore these “new things” with their friends. Besides the scheduled birthday time for kids to roam the museum, there is usually free play for the remainder of the day, which is a great perk for your party guests and their respective families if they choose to stay longer at the museum.
It fosters curiosity and learning
Museums allow children to imagine and explore. There’s tons of history, art, and science. The exhibits inspire children to wonder and dream of possibilities that are beyond what they know. There are so many things that kids have not seen before, which causes them to want to learn more. They ask questions. In turn, this fosters future learning.
You can schedule the party to fit into your time preference. The staff supplies different party packages, which includes the length of the party and access to the exclusive party room. You might want to bring in your refreshments (cake, ice cream, and drinks) for the celebration or purchase various food items from the given menu options. All of the details are handled including set-up and clean-up by assigned staff.
As mothers, we often think we can do it all (and we often do!). But if you factor in every aspect of a museum birthday party, it’s well worth it.
- entrance fee for the museum for guests
- the party package of your choice
- the colorful, party rooms with the themed supplies
- the special attention for your birthday child
- the fun time for the kids from a supervised staff
- the unique opportunity to explore and learn
You can readily focus on your child and his/her milestone with no need to worry. The children play in a large, well-supervised space. A competent staff is in charge. There are ample child-friendly activities designed to engage kids in the best possible ways.
