Share your birthday with us!

While the Aquarium does not have a dedicated space for your child’s birthday celebration, we do have some exciting birthday party options, including Simons Theatre birthday parties and a self-guided group visit to the Aquarium.

Most birthday parties are designed for kids age 5 and older—at minimum, the birthday child must be turning 3 regardless of the age of other participants.

Movie parties are our most popular option:
