Otto’s Science Lab
Otto’s scientist friends are ready to amaze you with experiments straight from the world of alchemy and chemistry. You’ll be amazed as they turn pennies to gold and perform other seemingly magical acts of wonder.

Each child will receive a kit with the supplies needed for their own rockets…to be completed at home, please. Best.party.favor.ever.

Decorations

We want your child's birthday party to be an amazing memory, and that includes fun decorations! You're welcome to bring tablecloths and free-standing decorations, however to keep our party rooms in the excellent condition you expect for your own child, please do not tape, pin, or attach anything to our party room walls or hang anything from the ceiling. Glitter, confetti, and piñatas, while each fun in their own way, are also not allowed.

Arrival

You can have access to your party room up to 30 minutes before your party so you'll have time to decorate and prepare for your guests. Party guests can enter the museum at any time on the date of your party.

Food and Drinks

We have wonderful catering services available from our in-house caterer, Salt & Surrey Catering, but you're welcome to bring your own food, cake and non-alcoholic beverages. We don't allow food deliveries for birthday parties.

Things to Leave at Home

No alcohol, or outside entertainment like costumed characters, glitter, confetti, or piñatas, please.

Science Museum Oklahoma parties aren't just for kids!

Want to plan an after-hours party for an adult or large group?

You can rent just a meeting room or the entire museum fully staffed!
