Looking for a place to have a Birthday Party? The Robert J. Novins Planetarium is a great place to host a Birthday Party! We offer a variety of Birthday Party packages.

Our Birthday Party Packages include the use of the planetarium’s party room for 1-1/2 hours. You may bring your own food and beverages or you may order from a restaurant. Several of the area’s local restaurants offer discounts and delivery.

Our pricing is based on the number of guests invited to your party. Tickets can be used as admission for either children or adults and the birthday child’s admission is free.

Planetarium Birthday Party Package:

  • $375 for up to 50 people
  • Bring your own food and non-alcoholic beverages
  • Private planetarium show (45-60 minutes)
  • 1 1/2 hour use of party room (30 minutes before the show and 60 minutes after)

*For parties larger than 50 people, please call the Planetarium and our group sales team can help you plan the best party ever!

Add-ons for your special day:

  • Themed Goody bags available for $3 each
