Countdown to the Eclipse: T-24 HRS

12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Get ready for the Total Solar Eclipse with the Witte Museum!

Learn how a solar eclipse happens by making your own Sun, Earth and Moon orbit model. Play hide-and-seek with the Moon to see what hidden shapes you can find! Make and customize your own eclipse glasses holder, great for those whose eclipse glasses aren’t a perfect fit. And much more! Join us for an astronomical afternoon of hands-on, family-friendly activities to prepare for Monday’s eclipse.


This event is included with General Admission. Purchase your Museum Admission online or purchase a Witte Museum Membership and enjoy events like this all year!


During a Solar Eclipse, remember to wear eclipse glasses and to never look at the sun with the naked eye.

Certified eclipse glasses are available for $4.95 each at the Bolner Family Museum Store at the Witte Museum. While there, shop our full collection of exclusive 2024 Total Eclipse t-shirts and stickers to memorialize your eclipse experience.
