Choose one of our kid-focused celebrations, (appropriate for ages 2-12) for a trip back in time.
 
Party Packages
All Aboard!
If you have a junior locomotive lover on your list, then this birthday is for you. Join your museum party facilitator for a fun tour of our REAL trains, followed by time in your private party room.
 
Prairie Life
Experience life in a log cabin with your museum party facilitator. Grind coffee, “wash” clothes and engage in pioneer costumed play, followed by time in your private party room.
 
What to Expect
Reservations for either All Aboard! or Prairie Life must be made two (2) weeks in advance, and a $50 nonrefundable deposit is required to reserve your date and time (deposit will be deducted from the final party cost).
 
The full balance payment for either party is due the Friday prior to your reserved date.
You are invited to bring your own food and refreshments (no alcoholic beverages); however, birthday party rooms are not designed to accommodate catering.
All Parties will be assigned a party facilitator, who will lead museum activities for you and your guests.
