Historical and Cultural Places of Interest in:

Who would your child invite to his or her birthday party? Friends from school or the neighborhood, maybe? Probably a few cousins. A ferret, possibly. Why not a tarantula? Or would he prefer to enjoy his birthday out in the field? Better yet, how about out in the field on the back of a pony? 

Maybe the cake should be followed up by a great science game or program. Or maybe he or she should be Captain for a Day aboard a submarine!  The possibilities are virtually limitless, and the costs surprisingly affordable. 

All of the places listed below will accommodate birthday parties to varying degrees, giving your 5-, 10-, or 40-year-old a birthday to remember. 

While details on the parties are not included in the listings, you can get a pretty good idea of what's available by seeing what the place is about.
