* While additional set-up and take-down time are possible, SCCM reserves the right to deny additional time based on our schedule, staffing, and availability. Should this be necessary we will refund your purchase of additional time. All adjustments to time, guest count, and vendor details must be confirmed via email by SCCM prior to booking vendors and sending out party invitations. Please email us at 

** The end time of your reservation means all decorations and vendors must be cleared of the party room by that time. Where possible SCCM welcomes party guests to enjoy all-day access to the museum, however, we reserve the right to limit access based on our programming and buy-out partners up until the day of the event. 


We understand life’s changes. If you need to cancel or reschedule your birthday reservation please cancel prior to two weeks of your scheduled date to avoid a $50 fee. Your deposit of $150 is non-refundable, as such we will not be able to refund this if you cancel your party. If you choose to reschedule your original deposit will transfer to your new date. If you purchased add-ons such as extra time or a museum-ed activity during your reservation and need to cancel your event, we will refund you for the full amount as long as you cancel at least two weeks prior to the event date. Any cancellations made after two weeks that included add-ons will not be refunded.
