Did you miss having a birthday party because of lockdown or COVID restrictions? Never mind the prehistoric past - there's no time like the present! Join us for a celebration, with a limited season of birthday parties with Peter the T. rex.
You and your fave friends will start off by hearing some amazing facts about Peter the T. rex, then head out on a prehistoric scavenger hunt around the galleries. Next, get up close with some real fossils, create some crafts, and even play a birthday game or two.
Adults, whichever party you choose, all you need to do is let your guests know the time and place, and we’ll do the rest. You don't need to bring decorations when the whole Museum is your party location. Jam-packed with activities, your child and their buddies will have a roarsome time. And if you’d like to farewell your guests with goodie bags, we can organise that for you too.
