Arrival/Access: A Fernbank staff member will be on-site to greet you and escort you to the party room. As the birthday party host, it is your responsibility to distribute the special wristbands that grants exclusive access to the museum and birthday party room to your guests. The Birthday Party Package includes all day museum access. If your group would like to arrive before the scheduled party time to see the museum, wristbands can be picked up and distributed to guests ahead of time.

Decorations: You are welcome to bring decorations such as table cloths, centerpieces, decorative party hats, napkins, plates and cups. Decorations hung from the walls or ceilings, glitter, and helium balloons are not permitted. Fernbank will provide tables with white linens, folding chairs and a dinosaur birthday throne for the birthday child.

Goodie Bags: The Birthday Party Package includes goodie bags for all children attending the party. Goodie bags contain several items from our Museum Store and will vary (some examples include erasers, stickers, small games and toys, etc.). Food is not included in goodie bags.

Reservations: A signed contract and payment must be received to reserve your party date. Payment for additional charges—catering, additional activities and additional guests—is due prior to the start of party. In the event of a cancellation, 50% of the birthday fees are refundable.

Private Party Room: Our private party room is located on the Upper Level of the museum. The total time reserved for your group in the party room is two hours, including time to set-up and clean-up. Many guests use the room as a “home base” to eat lunch, open presents and then plan to see the museum.
