• Parties

    Wonder Works is the perfect place to celebrate that special day for that special little someone. Wonder Works is a child-sized world designed to stimulate young children’s unique and natural learning abilities, encouraging them to explore freely while using their imaginations to discover and learn. 

    You can have a party during museum open hours or an exclusive private party after the museum closes. Both types of parties are open to both members and non-members.
