Welcome to RIMOSA!  We are an open-ended, hands-on space for process-based learning filled with interactive exhibits and activities that blend the sciences and art and awaken a child’s curiosity, ignite their creativity and allow them to explore without boundaries.  We are thrilled that you have considered our space for your child’s birthday party.

Please note the following when planning a party in our space:

  • For the comfort of all of our guests and to ensure that everyone enjoys their experience with us, we recommend that parties be no larger than 15 to 20 children and be held for a maximum of 2 hours.  For larger parties or those parties with longer hours, please contact our event coordinator at birthday@rimosa.org or info@rimosa.org 


  • A typical birthday party consists of about 45 minutes of playing in the exhibit space and may include activities such as spin art, zoetropes and craft table activities.  Another 45 minutes may be spent in our Makers’ Space enjoying one of our fascinating facilitated programs such as marble roller coaster, catapults among others. The last 30 minutes is reserved for cake!


  • We charge $150 for up to 10 children*.  Additional children are $15 per child.  One adult for every child is admitted free of charge and any adults over the 1 per child minimum are charged $5 each. A $50 non-refundable deposit will be collected at the time of booking.

More Details:  Families are responsible for providing food and non-alcoholic beverages. Refrigeration is available.  We can also provide table cloths, paper plates, cups, napkins, forks and spoons offered in a small array of solid colors if requested one (1) week prior to party. If people have a particular theme, of course, they are welcome to bring their own!

We are open to the public Thurs/Fri 1-5 & Sat/Sun 12-5. and are happy to arrange parties for 2 hour blocks during those times.  *We will also schedule parties when we are not open to the public. Those parties are billed at $25 per guest. For scheduling contact our event coordinator at birthday@rimosa.org

The Rhode Island Museum of Science and Art (RIMOSA) is located at 763 Westminster St., Providence RI. There is limited free parking in our lot behind the building and general parking on Westminster Street.

We look forward to hosting you soon!
