“What a fantastic place for a birthday party!! My son celebrated his 4th birthday with the Derby Car theme at Discovery Gateway. Kallie and Sara were fantastic. They helped with setup, the room was perfect, and they had everything organized while remaining so patient and flexible. We had a lot of happy children and parents. I will certainly will recommend your party options to my friends! After not renewing my membership for about a year, I decided to give this place another chance. The inside has had an upgrade since last Winter and we will be making more frequent trips to the museum. Thank you for a wonderful birthday party experience.”

“We literally just had my son’s 5th birthday at Discovery Gateway today and it was WONDERFUL! It was beyond perfect; the hostess lady had the perfect balance. She knew when we needed help and ASKED if we needed anything. Also, never was in the way! She also let my son give her a hug. She helped get snacks and drinks when it was needed. It was just perfect, and I HIGHLY recommend going to Discovery Gateway to ANYONE!”
