Celebrate Your Birthday With Us!

Birthday parties may look a bit different, but they are the same amount of fun! While our in-person facilitated birthday parties are not available at this time, we have two other great ways to celebrate your birthday with the Children’s Museum of South Dakota. Choose your own adventure!

Virtual Zoom Birthday Celebration:

Join a Museum educator for a Take-N-Make activity via Zoom video conference. Each birthday party participant will receive supplies for the activity and a hands-on live engagement to teach the activity via Zoom. Choose from a variety of activities featuring art and science. Examples include yarn tapestry, collage, and coding.

Cost: $10 per participant, shipping available for an extra cost

Private Outdoor Playtime:

Rent our outdoor space for a group of up to 20 people. Rental includes the entire outdoor prairie exhibit space. Facility rentals follow the operation modifications in our Museum Action Plan.

Available: Tuesday through Saturday, 5:30-7:30 pm

Cost: $150
