Please note: a free viewing area will be available outside of the Museum.

In April, Fort Worth will be in the path of totalityTotality is the point of the eclipse where the Moon fully covers the Sun. When this happens, not only will we see an ominous black shadow in the sky where our Sun used to reside, but also something truly rare to the human eye: the Sun’s corona, the outer atmosphere of our star. Be sure to savor this moment to the fullest because our totality will only last for about two and a half minutes before the blazing Texas Sun makes its reappearance.

What to Expect:

  • Prime eclipse viewing:  Join us on the Museum’s front lawn for a unobstructed view of this amazing eclipse!
  • Safe and informed experience:  Solar eclipse glasses will be available for purchase for $3 in addition to the general admission price. There will be a free viewing area outside of the Museum where guests can purchase solar eclipse glasses.
  • Family-friendly fun: From community science with members of our education team to musical performances from the Navy Band Southeast Brass Quintet, expect plenty of engaging activities as we await the solar eclipse.

Looking for even more solar eclipse fun? Head to the Fort Worth Botanic Garden for additional activities! Museum and FWBG members receive reciprocal free admission for this event.
