Birthday Parties

best of marin logo

See why we’ve been voted Best Kid’s Party in Marin seven years in a row - our parties are in Pacific Sun's Hall of Fame - and why the North Bay Bohemian voted us Best Awesome-Sauce Disco Ball Party!

We are a fun and unique place to celebrate birthdays 1- 8. All birthdays offer plenty birthdays of party time in one of our private rooms, unlimited fun for your guests throughout the Museum, and help from our friendly staff assistants for set up and clean up.

"I want to express what a wonderful time we had this past Sunday at my son's 5th birthday party at the Bay Area Discovery Museum. It was an amazing experience and I'm so very glad we had it there! Our friends could not stop talking about how much fun they and their children had at the party." - Sarah F., May 2013
