Princess Tea Party
The Children’s Museum of Eau Claire cordially invites you attend the annual Princess Tea Party! Your attendance is requested for afternoon tea and dainty treats, princess hairstyles, visits with royalty from the Eau Claire Children’s Theatre, magical princess crafts, splendiferous goody bags and unlimited play in the “Kingdom” (aka the Children’s Museum). Princess attire is always admired but never required!
Night at the Museum
Almost as fun as the movies themselves, CMEC’s “Night at the Museum” is a popular, drop-off event offered twice a year. Grown-ups get the evening off while their kids are entertained with exclusive, entertaining activities in the Museum after hours. And of course, all the fun is supervised by Museum staff and volunteers!

Museum After Hours (NEW for 2016!)
21+ / For those moments when adult-ing is just too hard, Museum After Hours gives grown-ups a chance to free their inner child and enjoy being a kid again. (It was way easier being a kid, wasn’t it?). Grab a buddy, dig up your Lisa Frank folders and break out the Walkman for this blast through the past. Grab a drink, throwback with your favorite nostalgic games (Nintendo tournament anyone?), learn stuff at interactive, educational activity stations (think the science of beer) and maybe make a new friend or, too. It all takes place at the Children’s Museum of Eau Claire, coming in 2016!
