150 Years of Discovery
Take a trip through time at this year’s Family Party!

The Family Party—one of the Museum's most beloved traditions and the best family party in New York City—features fascinating educational activities and spectacular entertainment for children of all ages.

Educational Activities and Museum Science Center
Children will show off their smarts and learn something new with activities, crafts, and entertainment throughout the Museum! Always a fun-filled learning experience, the Family Party allows children and adults to explore the wonders of the Museum after hours. The highlight of the evening will be the engaging “Museum Science Center,” where children can meet animals and learn from Museum curators, scientists, and educators about some of the most exciting artifacts and specimens in the Museum’s collections.
