FAQs

If you would like to see what the room looks like before your party date, please refer to the pictures on our website or contact our Birthday Party Coordinator to set up a date and time to view the space. Birthday Party Coordinator office hours are Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10am - 2pm.

A Greensboro Science Center employee will be assigned to help you host your party. However, we highly recommend that you bring at least 2 adults with you to help unload your vehicle, set up, clean up food and gifts, and re-load your vehicle.
Unfortunately, we do not have a suitable space to store cold food items, but you are welcome to bring your own cooler with ice to store your tasty treats!
Our animal presenter will choose which animals will be shown during your party. However, during your set-up time, you will have a one-on-one conversation with the presenter and you can request a particular animal(s) not be presented at your party. A list of commonly used animals is provided for you in your Party Planner. Party Planners are emailed to you once you’ve booked your party.
GSC members can use their membership for admission to join the party. These guests will not need to use one of the wristbands included in the chosen package. However, please note that although GSC members will not use one of the wristbands, the limit of 20 people per party still applies.
