The Kentucky Science Center in Louisville is hosting a special event for the upcoming solar eclipse on April 8th. This event will feature free activities with admission from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Guests will also have the opportunity to receive a limited number of free eclipse glasses.

During the event, guests can explore the Science Center’s 50,000 square feet of activities and enjoy special programming throughout the galleries. Educational programs about the eclipse, eclipse-viewing safety, gravity, cultural interpretations of eclipses, and constellations will be available. Additionally, guests can view the partial eclipse and participate in activities such as creating pinhole cameras and learning about UV rays.

In addition to the eclipse-related activities, guests can choose to watch a screening of the documentary “Journey to Space 3-D” in the Science Center’s four-story theater. This film explores NASA’s Space Shuttle program, the International Space Station, and the Hubble Space Telescope.

Kentucky Science Center CEO Mike Norman expressed excitement about hosting an event focused on this rare phenomenon. He emphasized the importance of engaging guests in scientific exploration and understanding the reasons behind the eclipse. This 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 a.m. to 5:00 p.m
