If your child had or will have a birthday during our closure, we feel you!  MuseumLab had its first birthday on April 27, 2020, and we would love to welcome visitors into the building to celebrate.  

In the meantime, find some fun at-home birthday actvities and music here to make an extra special celebration!  And enter your child in our "They Say It's Your Birthday" Contest for a chance to win a birthday party when the Museum reopens.
