The Annual Butterfly Ball

Mark your calendars for the 2017 Butterfly Ball!

The Science Museum of Western Virginia will present its fourth annual gala to make your heart flutter on

Saturday, March 25 from 6-10 pm.

Join us for an evening of playful experimentation at the 2017 Butterfly Ball! You will enjoy eclectic hors d’oeuvres from Center Stage, molecular gastronomy cocktails created by the museum staff, and a cash bar. You will also have the chance to try a variety of fun, hands-on scientific experiments led by our museum staff and volunteers. And don’t forget the DJ, dancing, and karaoke! The festivities will be in the 4th and 5th floor galleries of the Science Museum. We have added many new exhibits in the last year and we’re looking forward to giving the grownups a chance to play with them. You may wish to wear cocktail attire in bright colors or with bright accessories. If you have a favorite superhero (or villain), you could incorporate their signature colors or symbols into your outfit (for example, a black dress and cat jewelry for Catwoman). Proceeds from this special evening will directly support the Science Museum and its educational programming throughout the region.

Tickets: $95 per guest

Tickets may be purchased at the door or stop by the museum, call 540.342.5710, or email us at frontdesk@smwv.org.
