Experience the Great American Eclipse at the Kentucky Science Center in Louisville: A Hands-On Celebration of Science and Astronomy

Special solar eclipse event offered at the Kentucky Science Center

The Kentucky Science Center in Louisville is preparing to host a special event in honor of the upcoming solar eclipse. This exciting event will take place on April 8 from 1:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. and will feature a range of unique activities that are free with admission, as well as a limited number of eclipse glasses distributed for free with admission to the event.

During the event, attendees will have the opportunity to explore all 50,000 square feet of exhibits at the Kentucky Science Center, as well as participate in special programming that will be set up throughout the galleries. These activities will focus on educational programming about the eclipse, eclipse-viewing safety, the principles of gravity, different cultural interpretations of eclipses and constellations, and the chance to view the partial eclipse.

Some of the fun activities that guests can enjoy during this event include creating pinhole cameras, streaming live coverage of the eclipse from NASA, and participating in educational activities that teach about gravity, UV rays and more. Additionally, attendees can opt to watch documentary screenings of Journey to Space 3-D in the center’s four-story theater, which explores NASA’s Space Shuttle program, the International Space Station and Hubble Space Telescope.

Mike Norman CEO of Kentucky Science Center expresses his excitement about this special occasion and looking forward to engaging with visitors about this incredible astronomical event. This special event is made possible in part by a NASA Kentucky Space Grant. The Kentucky Science Center is located at 727 W Main Street and is open seven days a week from 9:30 am – 5 pm
