Birthday Parties

This year, book your event at the Great Lakes Aquarium and throw that special birthday-boy or girl a party to remember!

In this safe, interactive, kid-friendly environment, parents and chaperones can dish up a healthy dose of excitement alongside those cupcakes.  The air temperature in the Aquarium is kept at a comfortable 70°F year-round, and kids will lose themselves in the fun as they marvel at the tanks, watch the playful otters, and so much more!

  • Private, decorated party room
  • Aquarium gift for the birthday child
  • Special greeting by the Staff
  • Aquarium Picture Bingo worksheets – download PDF here!
