Birthday Parties

Plan your child’s next Birthday Party—with a Historical Twist!

Have a Historical Children’s Birthday Party at the Joel Lane Museum House.

Is your child interested in history? Do they love playing dress up? We have the perfect spot for your child’s next birthday party—the Joel Lane Museum House!

What’s Included: This one-hour event includes an age-appropriate tour of Joel Lane’s house and the external “kitchen” building, followed by playing with old-timey toys and games plus your choice of one activity: writing with a quill pen, rag doll making, tin punching an ornament, or dipping a beeswax candle.

Bring your own cake to enjoy in the gardens or, in case of bad weather, on the shaded porch of the Visitor’s Center. No food or drink is allowed in any building on the grounds.

Size Limit: Limit is 15 people including adults

Cost: Admission is $10 per person.

Available Times: Times are available by appointment. Advanced reservations are required.
