Treating your child to an educatIMG_2163-1024x763ional birthday at the Victoria Bug Zoo will help them foster their curiosity, understand the value of treating other living things with respect, and expose them to the wild diversity of the lesser known animals on our planet!

birthday booking will run two hours. The first hour is a private tour in the Party Room with one of our knowledgeable guides, and the  hour is for presents and snacks. Our tours are no longer hands on due to Covid-19 but a wonderful educator will hold a private bug show and tell for you.  Cleaning supplies are provided to help clean up after your booking. Feel free to decorate the plaphoto-1-1024x750ce! Trash must be taken.

The birthday booking has a base rate of $185 plus tax, and includes up to ten children and two adults. If extra children or adults wish to come on tour, we offer a discounted admission at $5.00 each. The Party Room currently has a capacity for 15 guests and one educatorAll those 5 and up must wear a face covering at all times.

We require at least two weeks advanced notice to accommodate your request, and we are now shifting to a prepaid process so you can focus on the experience, rather than invoices, on your child’s big day! You will pay  two days prior to your event through our secure online payment portal.

To inquire about booking availability, please email Karlee at bookings@victoriabugzoo.ca. What we need from you is an estimate of your group size, the age range of the children, a phone number to reach you at, and a request for the date and time of the party. We do our best to accommodate your requested date and time, but flexibility is appreciated as sometimes the requested time is already booked.

Tips for your tour guide are never expected but always appreciated.
