Get creative at our Art Party! Transform your party room into a creative wonderland as you paint, sculpt, draw, and embrace your inner artist. We’ll make our own play dough, artwork, and more!
Prepare your engines for an out-of-this-world birthday party! Use everyday items to build a functioning rocket. Challenge your friends to see who can shoot the highest!
Beware…there be pirates about! Join our crew and learn about the science of being a pirate! Build your own pirate ship and challenge your friends to see whose ship can carry the most treasure!
Fairy Tale Ball
Everyone is royalty at The Health Adventure! Celebrate your own prince or princess at our Fairy Tale Ball. We’ll play with mysterious dry ice bubbles and make a magical take-home craft!
Celebrate your little builder with our construction party! We’ll learn which shapes are the strongest and then build a tower. Will your tower be strong enough to survive our weight test?
It’s time for tea! Put on your fancy party clothes and join us for a tea party. We’ll make a miniature tea cup, and (of course!) drink a cup of special birthday tea!

The Not-So-Fine Print:
We require one adult for every 5 children. You are responsible for your guests from the time they enter the museum until they leave. Party prices include a maximum of 20 children and 30 adults. Parties with up to 12 children must pay the 10-child party rate plus museum admission of $6.50 for each additional child. Parties with 13-20 children must pay the 20-child party rate. Additional guests (more than 20 children or more than 30 adults) must pay regular museum admission ($6.50 for children, $9.50 for adults).
Parties include 90 minutes in the private party room and unlimited access to the museum for the day. In order to allow our staff to clean the room and prepare for our next party, we ask that party guests vacate the room at the scheduled time. Late departures will be subject to an additional fee of $25/half-hour.
We require full payment in advance. If cancelled more than seven (7) days in advance, then a 50% refund will be given. If cancelled seven (7) days or less, then no refund will be given. If the child is sick the day of the party, then a 50% credit will be given that may be used towards rescheduling a party. Any balance due (such as a party size increase or food order) that is not paid in full by the party’s departure date will be subject to a $5/day late fee.
Birthday parties include invitations ready for your personalized party details. Parties for up to 10 children include 10 invitations. Parties for up to 20 children include 20 invitations. Additional packs of 10 invitations are available for $5.
Any changes to party reservations (such as food orders, increasing party size, adding balloons, etc.) require a 48-hour notice to ensure our ability to meet your needs. Due to staffing and materials logistics, theme changes and Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream require at least a seven (7) day notice.
In the event of inclement weather, please call The Health Adventure at 828.665.2217 for updated information on any museum closure that may impact your party.
Birthday families are welcome to bring their own decorations and supplies. The Health Adventure is not responsible for setting up, storing, or tearing down guest-provided party items (including food). Guest-provided decorations may not be attached to the walls or suspended from the ceiling unless prior arrangements are made with museum staff at least one (1) week prior to the party date. Any hanging decorations must be set up by The Health Adventure’s staff and will result in an additional setup fee of $100.
All guest-provided decorations must be cleared from the party room 15 minutes after the designated party end time.
Depending on availability, we may be able to provide setup access to the party room the night before the party for a flat rate of $25/hour.
Unless otherwise noted, all party decorations, table displays, costumes, unused paper products, and unclaimed goody bags are the property of The Health Adventure.
