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. We're offering larger-than-life pirate parties in Horrible Histories - Pirates: The Exhibition which takes pride of place in the Great Gallery until Sunday 4 February 2018.

Your guests can not only get up close and personal with the pirate activities but enjoy all the modern and interactive exhibitions that the Museum has to offer. During Horrible Histories - Pirates: The Exhibition, we offer access to a private party room where kids and adults can sit down to celebrate with party food and fun activities (minimum 10 children).

Our birthday parties start at $27.50 per child and include:

  • Private Pirate/ Mermaid themed room, subject to availability (2 hours)
  • Decorated table
  • Snacks and nibbles
  • Pizza, nuggets and chips
  • Juice
  • Ice-cream cone
  • Treasure Hunt
  • Games
  • Dress ups
  • Full access to the Museum exhibits, displays and activities.
  • Free admission to the Museum for children invitees and 2 adults.

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