Children's birthdays after Corona break now possible again!

From now on, children's birthdays after the corona break can be booked again in the EXPERIMINTA ScienceCenter. Due to the corona regulations of the state of Hesse, the following hygiene rules currently apply:

  • A birthday party may consist of a maximum of 8 children. The group must be accompanied by two adults.
  • In the exhibition rooms as well as on the way to the children's birthday party room, all persons must wear a mouth-and-nose mask. Once everyone has taken their place in the birthday room, the masks can be removed. During the discovery tour through the exhibition the masks must be worn again. The masks must be brought along.
  • Currently only the consumption of a cake brought along is allowed in the children's birthday room. Other food, buffets and delivery services are not allowed. As the cafeteria is closed until further notice, no menu can be ordered at present.
  • A maximum of 10 people may sit at the table in the children's birthday room at the same time to eat the cake - while eating at the table, the distance to other people may be less than 1.5 metres.
  • As a small compensation for the inconvenience, each child will receive a popsicle.
  • All participants must provide their first and last name, address and telephone number before the start of the celebration in order to enable tracking in case of a possible infection. The lists will be kept by EXPERIMINTA gGmbH for the duration of one month after the celebration and destroyed afterwards. Upon request, the lists will be handed over to the health authorities.
