10th Annual Neanderthal Ball

November 5, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Take a step back in time as we toast the future at Orlando Science Center’s 10th Annual Neanderthal Ball!

Celebrate Orlando Science Center’s evolution and dig into the future at the most unique gala event this side of the Stone Age!

Join us for a night of Neanderthal-themed revelry. Our Neanderthal Ball offers a one-of-a-kind experience that blends an elegant cocktail party with a prehistoric mixer. Guests will enjoy the Science Center like they never have before as they experience a night of dancing, drinking, and eating with their fellow cavemen.

Though one does not need to dress like a caveman to enjoy the Neanderthal Ball. While themed dress is acceptable, our designated dress code is cocktail attire with an optional pop of print, so go wild with the cheetah and leopard patterns, or not.


• General: $150
• Couple: $265
• Member: $125

*ALL proceeds from the event benefit the Science Center and enable us to provide hands-on educational programs to learners of all ages regardless of income or background.
