Party Smarty is any parent-turned-party-planner’s one-stop shop for everything from decor to thank you notes to treat bags.

Plan your get together with one of three themes: Explore entomology in the Cockrell Butterfly Center, dig through dinosaur history in our new Hall of Paleontology, or have a shindig under the stars in the Arnold Space Center.

Each two hour party includes a ginormous birthday card, a crafting session and an exhibit tour. Any theme can be customized with great add-on demonstrations like Chemistry or Science on Stage, Wildlife or Bugs on Wheels and more. Want a magician? What about a face painter? Balloon artist? We’re telling you – we’ve got your covered.

For more information on our Party Smarty program or our super-duper deluxe offerings, call 713-639-4646 or email birthdays@hmns.org to get your party going today.

Come Party at the Museum with Party Smarty!

Today’s post is by Alex Pivateau, the Museum’s Birthday Party Manager!

Does your child love to stroll amongst jaw-droppingly gigantic dinosaurs?

Does he or she enjoy exploring outer space in our Planetarium?

Or perhaps he or she loves to watch butterflies excitedly flap their beautiful wings in the Cockrell Butterfly Center.

If your child loves coming to the Houston Museum of Natural Science, allow us to host their birthday party here for an engaging party they won’t forget!

Party Smarty at the Houston Museum of Natural Science is our birthday party program that hosts fun and educational birthday parties. Children learn about natural history and the world around us in an entertaining and visually stimulating way.

In our 90-minute party format, your child chooses a specific theme, and we focus his or her party around that theme. 20-30 minutes are for welcoming guests, while kids do crafts and activities. 30 minutes are allotted for either a tour of the dinosaur hall, entry to the Butterfly Center, or a movie in the Planetarium. Then we come back to the party room to eat cake and sing Happy Birthday!

Party Smarty Gift Bags

Each HMNS birthday party comes with a decorated party room (with special focus on the theme of the party), 6 6-ft tables, table covers, chairs, two parking passes to our garage, and a party coordinator who is in charge of supervising crafts, leading the tour, cutting/passing out cake, and transporting items to and from your car. Balloons, silverware, invitations and thank you cards are available for an extra fee.

We also have add-on presenters to help enhance the party to be even more fun and memorable! We have balloon artists, face painters, magicians, exotic animal presenters, and chemistry demonstrators who can come in to the party to create an extra fun time.
