Solar Eclipse Day at AMNH

  • Apr 8 10am - 3pm
  • American Museum of Natural History

On Monday, April 8, a total solar eclipse will cross North America, passing over Mexico, the United States, and Canada.

The last time the contiguous United States saw a total solar eclipse was in 2017, and the next one won’t be until 2044. Here in New York City, we’ll be able to see the Moon cover up to 90 percent of the Sun. The eclipse will start at 2:10 pm, reach maximum coverage at 3:25 pm, and end at 4:36 pm.

Join us at the Museum before the eclipse for family-friendly educational activities and to receive your eclipse glasses, while supplies last!
