Looking for a venue to celebrate your child’s birthday this year?

Host it at The Newark Museum of Art! Our birthday parties spark curiosity in children ages 5-12 and their guests.

With the magic of the Museum as a backdrop, our educators lead a one-of-a-kind activity for your child. Party participants will also take a walk on the wild side and enjoy exclusive access* to Animal Kingdom, our new interactive and immersive experience where art meets science & technology.

The galleries transform into an all-in-one party room that comes complete with animated wall graphics to eliminate the stress of decorating. All parties have a choice of hands-on science activity, a private planetarium screening, or both!


  • $600 (up to 2 hours)
  • $750 (up to 2 hours with Planetarium show)

Prices are for groups of 30 guests (both adults and children) and include:

  • exclusive space*
  • goody bags
  • special birthday gift
  • one or two activities.

An additional $180 fee will be charged for up to 50 guests.

Affordable food options are available via Eclectic Catering (phone: 201-303-3251) for an additional cost.

* Exclusive access to the Animal Kingdom exhibition is possible outside of the Museum opening hours only.
