Invent birthday fun at the Michigan Science Center. Just choose one of our party packages to create an event full of spontaneous combustion (a.k.a. laughter). We’ll set-up to two hours of reserved party space filled with experiments and birthday activities and help schedule more fun during your stay too. Best of all, a Mi-Sci host will lead the party.
Note: For the best possible experience for all our guests, helium balloons are not allowed in the building.
