BIRTHDAY PARTIES at Gateway to Science are….. FUN… COOL… AWESOME…and very popular! The birthday child must be turning at least 7 years old for either type of birthday party. Parties may only be held during the “Birthday Party Hours”. Reservations must be made at least 2 weeks prior to the date of the party.

It's fun, it's cool, it's awesome... it's science! Gateway to Science offers the only hands-on science exhibit gallery in North Dakota. Our fun exhibits, programs and free family events make Gateway to Science a true community treasure where children and families can explore.


Gateway to Science opened in November 1994. We developed and moved into the Frances Leach High Prairie Arts & Complex in 2005, along with several arts organizations.
