Miami Birthday Parties

By

Looking for a great place to host your child's birthday party in Miami? Here are ten great ideas that I've either used for my own kids or where we attended birthday parties hosted by other families.

1. Jungle Island

Greater Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau
Jungle Island's party packages range from $30-$40 per guest with a 30 guest minimum. You'll receive a meal, use of a private party area, admission to Jungle Island, a group photo, return admission passes and recognition at the Jungle Island shows throughout the day.

2. Miami Science Museum

Miami Science Museum
The Miami Science Museum offers staff-assisted birthday parties for groups of up to 20 guests for $400 ($7 per additional child). The party includes a private science demonstration, three hours' use of the private party room, museum admission, invitations and a gift certificate for the birthday child.

3. Miami Seaquarium

Greater Miami Convention and Visitors' Bureau
The Seaquarium also provides private birthday parties at a cost of $495 for 15 guests or $990 for 30 guests. You'll receive lunch, a personalized birthday cake, admission to the park, a t-shirt and return admission ticket for each child and a plush toy for the birthday guest. If weather permits, a Seaquarium character will visit your party as well. You may also add on a Dolphin Encounter experience for $79 per child.

4. Miami Children's Museum

Birthday packages at the Miami Children's Museum begin at $350 and include admission for 20 children, a hands-on activity, a visit from a character and use of a private party room. You can also theme your party or add other experiences for an additional fee.

5. Miami MetroZoo

Greater Miami Convention and Visitors' Bureau
My children love attending parties at the zoo! The zoo birthday party package is $490 for 20 guests and includes zoo admission, a meal in a private area, birthday cake and a zoo-themed party favor for each child. You can also add on a tram tour, animal encounter, or visit from Diego for an additional fee.

6. Play at the Park

Why not host your own party at one of Miami-Dade's many parks? You can reserve a private area and set up your own fun in a natural setting.

7. Kendall Ice Arena
