Just for kids! A birthday party at BAMZ is a fun way to celebrate a special occasion. Schedule one of our weekend parties for an unforgettable birthday.
Note that children’s parties are a feature offered exclusively to Bermuda Zoological Society members. The minimum level of a Family Membership is required in order to book a party.
We provide drinks, finger sandwiches or pizza, and a birthday cake. Plates, cups, napkins and banners will also be provided. You bring the kids!
Activities of an entertaining and educational nature pertaining to an aquarium or zoo theme will be organised. A party hostess will be provided by BZS. Our ‘Dive Talks’ and ‘Seal Feedings’ are not included in the party package, but please call if you would like further details about other activities.
The parents or guardian of the birthday child are required to attend. Any additional adults must pay any applicable entry fee to BAMZ.
Parents are advised to drop off and pick up their children at the entrance porch to the Aquarium. Children should be collected promptly at the end of the party. BZS staff are not responsible for children after the party has finished.
The Bermuda Zoological Society and the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum & Zoo actively campaign against the use of balloons due to their hazard to marine life. For this reason NO balloons will be allowed on the premises.
