Eclipse Extravaganza

April 8

Experience the once-in-a-lifetime phenomenon of the solar eclipse totality at The Children's Museum. Join us for giveaways, activities, and festivities to celebrate this historic event. 

The Children's Museum has limited outdoor viewing capacity. 

The Eclipse Extravaganza is supported by the Simons Foundation and is part of its 'In the Path of Totality' initiative.


The Children's Museum is primarily an indor institution. We cannot guarantee a prime viewing spot for the eclipse. With that being said, at 1 p.m. on April 8, our outdoor sports area in the Riley Children’s Health Sports Legends Experience® will be converted to an eclipse viewing location with limited capacity. Spots will be available on a first come, first served basis and cannot be held throughout the day.

We've assembled a list of frequently asked questions related to Eclipse Weekend and the Eclipse Extravaganza to help you prepare for this astronomical day.
