Birthday Parties



LASM voted "Best Place for Kids' Birthdays" in 225 magazine's 2013 Best of 225 Awards. Let us show you why!

There is no place like a museum or planetarium to have fun! You and your child choose one of the cool themes, and LASM will entertain the partygoers with stories, activities, and projects centered on the theme. You provide the refreshments, LASM will provide the fun!
