Birthday Party Packages
Schedule your child’s next birthday party at The Durham. It will surely go down in history! (Party packages are appropriate for ages 2-12)
Have a SUPER Birthday at the Museum!
Available January 28 – April 16, 2023
Our NEW birthday package includes museum admission, 2 hours in your own party space, entry and exploration of the Hall of Heroes exhibition, choice of superhero-themed activity and/or craft plus time to enjoy the museum!
Party your way through our passenger cars, caboose and steam engine before celebrating with a reading of Locomotive. Party guests will then get to make their own steam engine craft to take home.
Party at The Platform
After celebrating your birthday in our interactive, STEAM-based play space, party-goers will enjoy a reading of Iggy Peck, Architect before competing in a tower building competition.
Stomp, chomp, roar…Happy Birthday!
Do you have a little paleontologist celebrating a big birthday? Book your party at The Durham! In addition to your own two-hour party room rental and time to enjoy the museum, partygoers will enjoy special guest Dinosaur Ranger Anthony, from Stomp Chomp Roar! Ranger Anthony will share his fossil cart and lead guests through a fossil dig and a volcano experiment. Of course, the party wouldn’t be complete without a visit from Paleo, the Baby Spinosaurus!
