Lilac now offers birthday parties for kids ages 5 to 11 on board our docked museum ship. We’ve partnered with e.t.c. (events--tailor-made and customized) to offer three themes to choose from: Mermaids, Pirates, and On the High Seas. Each party for up to 20 kids includes a tour of the ship, a custom-made craft activity by The Crafty Kids, games, a story, pizza, and party bags. Parties may be scheduled on Saturdays and Sundays from May through October. To book a party or for more info, email

Sure, you can have a birthday party indoors--and on land--but why would you?
