Partial Solar Eclipse Viewing Party at Frost Science

On April 8, 2024, the United States will experience a total solar eclipse, casting its shadow across a wide swath of the country. From Texas to Maine, this celestial event is considered one of the most anticipated of the year. Although Miami will not be directly in the path of totality this time, the city will still experience a partial eclipse.

Frost Science is inviting guests to join in a partial solar eclipse viewing party starting at noon on April 8. The waterfront museum will offer special programming in the planetarium and throughout its galleries, exploring the science and history of eclipses. Visitors can view the partial solar eclipse from one of six museum levels, but are reminded to use solar viewers to protect their eyes, which are provided for free with ticket purchase.

To celebrate this rare event, attendees can participate in activities such as building a lunar base camp, creating a pinhole camera, storytime, an interactive eclipse show, and more leading up to the main event. For non-members, tickets start at $37.95 for ages 12 and older and $26.95 for children ages four to eleven, granting full access to the museum and eclipse programming. Rooftop access during the event will be limited to active Frost Science members on a first-come, first-served basis.
