Birthday parties

We take the stress out of party planning.

As one of Townsville's top attractions, the Museum offers a birthday party experience to remember.

The birthday boy or girl and their friends can enjoy all the modern and interactive exhibitions and activities before sitting down in the exclusive reserved area in the Museum Café to celebrate with yummy party food.

Our birthday parties start at $18.50 per child and include:

  • general museum entry
  • full access to all exhibitions, displays and activities
  • platters of Fish Fingers, Dino (chicken) Nuggets and hot chips
  • nibbles / snacks
  • juice
  • an exclusive seating area in the Museum Café.

You're welcome to bring your own birthday cake (at no extra cost) or order one of ours (at an additional cost).

Our special extras

Beau the Butterfly

If you're after a butterfly party with a difference, you can book Beau the Butterfly to make an exclusive appearance, hand out temporary Beau tattoos and play a game with the children. 

Pirate parties

If you're after a pirate party with a difference, book an exclusive cannon-firing activity, Running Out the Gun. Running Out the Gun is an interactive session where children learn how to fire a six pounder cannon like they did on sailing ships in the 1700s. 


The Museum Café is open for birthday parties between 10am and 1.30pm every day we are open.
