Noon Year's Rockin' Eve at the Children's Museum by Jim Wertz
Looking for a kid-friendly NYE?

Many New Year party goers have plans firmly cemented by now, but if you have kids that can be a difficult proposition.

The good news: one of the best new year’s eve parties in town just happens to be kidsclusive.

“Noon Year’s Eve” at the Experience Children’s Museum includes access to museum activities, a raucous dance party, and even an apple juice-fueled toast at high noon. Kid’s can also make their own party hats and noisemakers in advance of the 12PM balloon drop.

“Kids want to be a part of the celebration,” says the museum’s executive director, Ainslie Brosig. “This way they can have their little party and celebrate early.”

The museum is open from 10AM-4PM, but the dance party runs from 11AM-1PM.   

So if you're of the parental set, round up the little monsters and head into the party zone. 

Admission is included in museum membership or $6 for non-members.
