Birthday Party FAQ’s

When is Payment Due?
A $50 deposit is required at booking, the remaining balance is due by the conclusion of the party.

Can I bring food/cake?

Yes! Party hosts are allowed to bring whatever food and drink they would like to serve at the party, our only restriction is no alcohol in the museum.  All food and drinks must stay in the party rooms to keep the museum clean and allergy-safe for all our guests.

Can I decorate the party room?
Party hosts are welcome to decorate the party room however they would like for the party, provided that decorations do not cause damage to DSMCM property.

Can I arrive early to set up?
You can access the party room up to 15 minutes before your scheduled start time to set up.

Can I bring my own plates/cups/etc?
We provide disposable plates and cups with a generic design, and plain white plastic cutlery.   Party hosts who prefer to have these items match their party theme are welcome to bring their own.

How big is the party room?
Our party rooms are approximately 20’x20′.  They can comfortably accommodate up to about 35 people.

Can I hire a princess/superhero/magician/etc?
Party hosts are permitted to bring in outside entertainers such as face painters, magicians, or costumed characters.  For parties held during regular hours, any such activities that are not available to all museum guests must stay in the reserved party room only.  Mall policies prohibit anyone walking through public areas of the mall wearing a mask, masked costumed characters will need to arrive out of costume or use the loading dock entrance.  Please contact to inform our staff about any planned activities and confirm details.

What if I have extra party guests?
Parties during regular hours include up to 15 child admissions(30 for XL parties), we do not charge admission for adults, only children ages 1-10 count toward this total.  Additional guests are allowed at a rate of $6 per child for up to 10 additional children.  Payment is due by the conclusion of your party.  There is not a specific guest limit for private parties since you are renting the whole facility, but the party rooms are comfortable for up to about 35 people, so we recommend the XL option for larger groups.

Can I see the party room before my party?
Of course!  Below are images of both party rooms, and a shot looking toward the party rooms from the snack area.  If you would like to see them in person, feel free to stop by the museum any time during our open hours.
