Types of Birthday Parties

Extravaganza Party Themes

Feel as if you’ve just stepped into a tropical paradise with this party! The Luau party includes tiki and island decorations and games. Every child attending the party gets to go home with a lei. Children can dress the part of an island hopper by wearing grass skirts. Kids get their picture next to a palm tree to take home as a keepsake.

Howdy partner! The Western birthday party includes Western decorations such as a cactus, wagon wheels and steer heads. Every child who attends the party gets a plastic cowboy hat and sheriff badge. Kids get to sit up on the saddle and have their picture taken, along with meeting one of MCM’s animals.

Ahoy, matey! Be a birthday pirate at the museum. This party is all about the birthday pirate and his or her mates! From red and black pirate decorations, an island hopping game with pirate treasures, bandannas for guests and a pirate hat for the birthday boy or girl, a swashbuckling good time is guaranteed as each child goes home with a special photo.

Purple Princess 
Step into a world of make-believe! Your child will be the ruler of all they see as they sit atop our child-sized throne. The children will act out the role of royalty, complete with a royal crown, play royal games and have pictures taken on the throne!
