Birthday parties

Here at the Imagination Station, we take pride in our ability to offer a different kind of birthday party that's sure to be a good time! We offer several party packages:

Pirates of the Carolinas: All ages Celebrate your birthday on the seven seas and get to know some of the most feared pirates that hung around North Carolina. The birthday boy or girl will be able to choose between making pirate hats or creating their own pirate flags.

Fun with Fossils: Ages 6 & older Learn about our natural history as we go fossil hunting! At this party attendees will learn about fossils and what they can tell paleontologists about the past.

Chemistry Concoctions: Ages 6 & older Channel your inner mad scientist as we explore the world of chemistry. During this party we will learn how different types of matter interact with each other and the reactions that can occur. Birthday party guests will be able to bring home a gooey creation of their own.

Shrinky Dinks : All Ages Watch your colorful creation change shape right before your eyes! Everyone will design their own special trinket and watch as it shrinks into a new form.

North Carolinas First People: All Ages Take a trip back in time as we learn about the first North Carolinians, the Native Americans. We will learn about how Native Americans lived and thrived before the first Europeans arrived. The birthday boy or girl will have the option of making Native American jewelry or a musical instrument called a bullroarer.

Animal Program: All Ages We are going WILD at our birthday parties! Join us as we travel across the planet with the help of our unique animals here at the museum.

Color Craze: Ages 2-6 Discover the rainbow! We will be mixing different colors to create a whole new hue. A little bit of magic will be used to make a special project your guests will take home.
