Celebrate a Birthday at the New Brunswick Museum!

With current COVID-19 pandemic, we have paused private events.

We offer unique birthday party opportunities for all ages. Birthday parties are booked for two hours. The first 45-60 minutes is a program with a Museum interpreter. The interpreter will explore a gallery with the children and offer a guided adventure! For the rest of the time a room is booked for food and presents organized by parents; your guests can also enjoy exploring the galleries.
