Come celebrate your birthday with the Emerald Coast Science Center!

​We're positive the best birthday parties are a science, and our celebrations earned us "Best Place for a Kid's Birthday Party" in the 2020 Best of the Emerald Coast! We offer birthday party packages every Saturday of the month, typically from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. or 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Available times vary based on special events, so please call to verify.

​Party Themes:

  • The Jurassic Party is sure to pique the interest of any and all dinosaur enthusiasts. A fun make-your-own fossil activity as well as special dinosaur games on our Magic Floor and Augmented Reality Sandbox let your birthday party guests travel back in time to when dinosaurs ruled the Earth.

  • Is your child wild about animals? Our Animal Safari package includes a Creature Feature—our live animal presentation showcasing a few of the Science Center’s amazing animals. Your child will get to learn about and safely interact with these creatures, making the coolest birthday memories to last a lifetime. Fun animal-themed games on the Magic Floor and Augmented Reality Sandbox in the main gallery will ensure this partying is roaring!

  • We got the spirit, you got to hear it, Under the Sea! For the beach lover, shark fanatic, or ocean aficionado, the Under the Sea theme utilizes our very cool Ozobots to perform a beach clean up and seas the day. Dive in and discover marine life on our Augmented Reality Sandbox and Magic Floor in the main gallery, too!

  • The main activity with all three themes can also be replaced by general-themed games on the sciPad (think room-sized iPad) instead.
