We love the children's museum. We actually had our son's last birthday there. They were so accommodating and helpful. The kids always love it. For a hands on museum, the Children's Museum is top.

Yes, you can do birthday parties. I believe current price is $150 for room use for 2 hours that includes museum admission for 15 children and accompanying adults.
