    Solar Eclipse Viewing Party

    Join us to marvel at the first total solar eclipse visible from the contiguous United States since 1979. Charlotte is located near the path of totality (98% eclipse) and from the roof of our parking deck, you will have a prime location to witness the sun disappearing behind the moon. The skies will begin to darken at 1:12 p.m., and you can begin to view the eclipse through a special solar telescope and other solar viewing devices.

    Discovery Place educators will be on hand to guide you through the eclipse and to answer questions throughout. Your ticket includes full-day admission to Discovery Place Science plus a pair of NASA-approved solar eclipse viewing glasses so you can watch the event as it happens.

    The Discovery Place Science Parking Deck is accessed from Level 3 of the Museum. There is no seating provided, but you are welcome to bring your own lawn chair. Snacks and drinks are available for purchase in Curio City Kitchen and may be brought up to the Parking Deck.

    In the Museum throughout the day, guests will be able to engage in special eclipse activities, including making your own eclipse viewer in Thinker Space, the Museum’s new hands-on lab located on Level 3 (tickets are not required for this activity).

    Tickets are required to participate in the parking deck Solar Eclipse Viewing Party, and space is limited. Advance purchase is highly recommended. Tickets are non-refundable.

    All Solar Eclipse Viewing Party tickets include full-day admission to Discovery Place Science, access to the Parking Deck for the Solar Eclipse Viewing Party and a pair of NASA-approved glasses. Tickets are T$22 for adults, $18 for children, $20 for seniors and $5 for Members.
