Celebrate a historic birthday!
Host your child’s next birthday party at the History Center, and enjoy the fun and festivities. We provide the party room, decorations, invitations, activities, and a genial host. All you provide is the food – and if you like, we can help with that, too. Our children’s parties are available in a variety of themes.
Pirates: Young swashbucklers create pirate hats and swords, sink an enemy ship, and venture on a museum-wide treasure hunt.
Amazing Animals: Partygoers make safari binoculars and test their knowledge about Florida’s awesome wildlife in our animal quiz game.
Junior Detectives: It’s a mystery: Someone’s stolen the birthday cake! Kids become detectives as they collect clues, examine the evidence, and even take their suspect to court.
Florida Fun: Mermaids, gators, and theme parks, oh my! Children are transformed into “tin can” tourists who travel through the history of Sunshine State’s unique and exciting attractions.
Space Adventures: Partygoers complete their version of Astronaut training in our fun-filled obstacle course and explore the galaxy with our space scavenger hunt.
Tea Party: It’s time to play Victorian games, learn tea-party etiquette, make paper dolls, and enjoy a “jungle cruise” through our exhibits. Pass the tea and crumpets, please!
Pioneers: Kids become Florida pioneers for a day as they learn to make their own toys, hats, and butter and travel back in time to the days of Cracker cow hunters and cattle rustlers.
