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

During the event, guests will have the opportunity to explore all 50,000 square feet of activities at the Kentucky Science Center and participate in special programming stationed throughout the galleries. These activities will focus on educational programming about the eclipse, eclipse-viewing safety, principles of gravity, cultural interpretations of eclipses and constellations, and more.

The Kentucky Science Center’s CEO, Mike Norman, expressed excitement for the event and the opportunity to engage with guests about the eclipse. “We’re thrilled to be able to provide this unique experience for our visitors,” said Norman. “Our hope is that by participating in these educational activities and viewing this historic event through safe means, guests will gain a deeper understanding and appreciation for science and space exploration.”

Some of the activities that guests can enjoy during the event include creating pinhole cameras, streaming coverage of the eclipse from NASA, educational activities that teach about gravity, UV rays, and more. Additionally, guests 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, International Space Station and Hubble Space Telescope.

The Kentucky Science Center is located at 727 W Main Street in Louisville and is open seven days a week from 9:30 am to 5 pm.
