Birthday Parties

Birthday Parties Banner

Celebrate your child’s birthday in a unique way here at the planetarium! Your child and their friends enjoy a planetarium program in our dome and have their party in our multi-purpose room. The planetarium also provides a gift for the birthday child and grab bags with fun celestial items for children participating. During the show the birthday child’s name is displayed in the stars! See details about birthday parties here.
