Want an inexpensive alternative to a formal Biomes birthday party? Come in after school during our public hours and celebrate your child’s big day with a Biomes excursion. View our exhibits, pet the sharks and other creatures, and even use our indoor picnic area if you wish. Ideal especially for the older kids celebrating a birthday, this informal outing is self-directed, although staff is always on hand for guidance and we’ll have a scavenger hunt activity waiting for you when you arrive, and best of all there is no time limit. Eat here or go out for pizza afterwards. It's all up to you. A group discount of $7.50 per person (children and adults) is offered when advance notice of your arrival is given.
