Throw a party of historic proportions

Spend your special day discovering museum wonders! With birthday parties that spark curiosity (and take a weight off your shoulders), you'll breathe easy knowing you and your guests will make memories celebrating and exploring at the RAM!

Birthdays at the museum are currently available for children 5–12 years old.

For $250, our birthday party package includes:

  • All-day admission for 10 children and two adults to all museum galleries.
    $15 for each additional child, $20 for adults. Please note there must be at least one adult for every five children. For every five additional children, one adult is free.
  • 60-minute room rental to celebrate in style (Need more time? You can extend your room rental by 1 hour for $50.)
  • 30 minute room set up time to prep your party room
  • Cupcakes and beverages for all guests
  • A museum t-shirt for the birthday child
  • Party invites for your guests
  • Your own birthday party host

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.

Giant Millipede Encounter ($40): Have you ever wanted to pet (or even hold) one of the museum's live critters? Get up close and personal with one of our biggest bugs, the giant African millipede!

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!
