Birthday parties

We take the stress out of party planning.

As one of Townsville's top attractions, the Museum offers a birthday party experience to remember. And until 9 July 2017, we're offering larger-than-life dinosaur parties in the Dinosaur Discovery: Lost Creatures of the Cretaceous exhibition.

Your guests can not only get up close and personal with the dinosaurs but enjoy all the modern and interactive exhibitions that the Museum has to offer. During the Dinosaur Discovery exhibition, we offer access to a private party room where kids and adults can sit down to celebrate with party food and prehistoric fun activities (minimum 10 children).

Our Dino birthday parties start at $24.50 per child and include:

  • special guest dinosaur appearance
  • decorated table
  • snacks and nibbles
  • private room (subject to availability)
  • full access to Museum exhibits, displays and activities
  • dino nuggets and chips
  • Juice and an ice-cream cone
  • entry to the Museum and guests are free to stay on after the party and enjoy the Museum afterwards.

You're welcome to bring your own birthday cake (at no extra cost) or order one of ours (at an additional cost).
