Birthday Parties

Make your child’s next birthday extra special with a unique colonial-themed party at the Litchfield Historial Society! A personal museum guide will lead you and your guests through 90 minutes of fun, hands-on activities followed by a birthday celebration.


We tailor every party to meet the birthday kid’s age and interests. Activities can include:

  • Dressing up in colonial clothes
  • Stenciling a journal
  • Piercing a “tin” lantern
  • Making a tricorne hat
  • Writing with quill pens
  • Playing historical games
  • Learning colonial table manners


  • Time: 2 hour celebration (90 minutes of activities, 30 minutes of celebration)
  • Ages: Best for ages 6-12
  • Location: Litchfield History Museum, 7 South Street
  • Family Provides: Supplies for birthday celebration, including cake, refreshments, and paper supplies
  • Cost: $200 (party up to 13 children) + $50 (for a second facilitator and up to 18 children)
