Make it Memorable! Party Activities That Encourage Fun & Learning

Planning birthday parties are harder than everyone thinks. Save yourself the stress and let Port Discovery do all the work for you!

Birthdays at Port Discovery!

Celebrate your child’s special day at Port Discovery Children’s Museum and enjoy unforgettable activities, food, presents and cake in a private party room and all-day play at Port Discovery!

Here at Port Discovery, play and learning go hand-in-hand. Our birthday parties are full of hands-on fun and learning all ages will adore!

Available themes include*:

  • Fizztacular Fun: Science, colors, chemical reactions…oh my!  Birthday Party Guests will experiment with everyday chemical reactions as they observe the colorful and fizzing fun that comes from foaming stars and bath bombs. As children observe the cause and effect aspect of the chemical reaction happening, they'll be encouraged to think critically about the magic they're seeing (energy changing states of matter) just before their eyes.
  •  Mission: Birthday: Become a spy inside Port Discovery!  Birthday Party Guests will role-play as spies, encouraging imaginative thinking and assuming a new identity, while exploring the impact of decisionmaking as they adventure through the Laser Maze Obstacle Course and Coding Mission! The Spymaster (aka Party Pal) will introduce guests to the historical Choctaw Code Talkers before allowing children to adventure through the Museum while creating codes for their friends back in the Party Room to solve, before completing a code wheel to take home. 

Our smaller spies (ages 4 and under), will experience an interactive and adventerous game of I Spy after adventuring through the Lazer Maze Obstacle Course!

  • Pirates & Mermaids Adventure:  Take a whimsical trip under and around the sea on the Pirates and Mermaids Adventure! Choose your costume piece and prep for facepainting before the Legends of Pirates and Mermaids begins in the story cove! After learning about the mystical world and myths of Pirates and Mermaids, guests will create a treasure map and follow clues around the Museum to find their friend's buried treasure while role-playing as a Pirate or Mermaid. Afterward - trips to the Treasure Box for all!
