Birthday Party FAQ
Q: How many guests can I bring to my party?
A: The price of your party includes 20 guests (adults and kids), including you and the birthday child. Your guests have admission to the museum for the entire day of your party and are welcome to come early or stay after your party.
Your party can accommodate up 30 guests. For each guests over 20 there is an additional charge of $8 per person. We can not accommodate more then 30 guests due to California Fire Code.
Q: What is the difference between the “Basic Critter Party”, the “Aha” theme parties, and the ‘Cre-8” parties?
A: The Critter Party gives you and your guests access to the museum for the whole day along with use of our birthday party room for a hour and half for food, cake, presents, etc.
The” Aha” and ”Cre-8” parties are workshop events led by our Birthday Party Coordinators to provide you and your guests with a unique birthday party experience. They are theme related and can include special craft making, treasure hunts, and/or clay animation and music production activities.
Q: Can we bring our own food?
A: Yes. Children’s Creativity Museum does not provide food for your event. You are more than welcome to bring your own food. We have a mini fridge in the Birthday Party Room for your use. Due to the small size of the fridge, we suggest not bringing anything too large or that has to be kept frozen.
In addition, you are welcome to order food to be delivered to Children’s Creativity Museum. For catering suggestions please ask your birthday party coordinator for recommendations.
Q: How long can my guests stay?
A: Your guests have admission to the museum for the entire day of your party. We ask that you fill out a guest list and email it to us the day before the party. Your guests should check in at the front desk for entry into the museum.
Q: When should I expect to hear from my Birthday Party Coordinator?
A: you should expect to hear from your birthday party coordinator one week before your party to discuss the flow of the party and the activities for theme parties.
Q: What is the deal with the Guest List?
A: We ask that you fill out the guest list that was included with your confirmation email. This includes all the adults and children (even ones under 3) that are coming into the party. We need this information in order to check guests in as they arrive at the museum. Please provide us with the list on the day before the party. We can make changes on the day of the party if necessary.
Q: Will there be someone to help unload our car?
A: Yes. If you are driving to the museum, when you are about 5 minutes away, give us a call at 415.820.3515.
