Countdown to the Total Eclipse with the Witte Museum!

Join us for an afternoon of stellar hands-on activities and astronomical fun. See the Sun in a whole new light using solar telescopes. Learn how a solar eclipse happens by making your own Sun, Earth and Moon orbit model. Explore the universe like a scientist using filtered light. And much more!


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.
