Planning your party
Our party rooms are available on Sundays from 12–1pm and 3:30–4:30pm. Before you celebrate in the party room, you'll be off discovering the museum together. Most groups schedule about one and a half hours to explore, but you are welcome to stay all day. Need more time in the party room? You can extend your room rental by one hour for $50.
Every birthday party at the museum includes delicious cupcakes and beverages. If you'd like to step your party up a notch, pre-order tasty food from our café! You'll receive a copy of our catering options form when you submit your birthday party request below.
Our Museum Café provides stress-free food and drink options for all your party needs. Our friendly staff will prepare your food and drinks and bring it to your party room right before your party starts. Once you've all had your fill, they'll pop back in and take care of cleanup!
Please note that no outside food (homemade or store bought) is permitted. For the protection of the public, our guests and yours, the Museum Café is the sole supplier of all food and beverage. We monitor temperatures regularly and adhere to a 60-minute food safe timeline.
Exploring the museum is awesome, but if you want to fill your party with even more fun, we have some options for you.
Super Hero Capes ($20 rental): Be a museum super hero! Rent a set of super hero capes for everyone to party in style. Both child and adult sizes are available.

Museum Colouring Books ($3 per book): Beautifully illustrated by local artist Crystal Driedger, these fun activity books feature Moe the Mammoth on his adventures. These books make a great party favour!
