2024 Solar Eclipse

Monday, April 08, 2024 at 2:00pm to 4:00pm

MIT Museum
314 Main Street, Gambrill Center, Cambridge MA 02142

Join us at the Museum for an afternoon of programming celebrating the 2024 solar eclipse.

On April 8, 2024, a total solar eclipse will cross North America, passing over Mexico, United States, and Canada. Some parts of Massachusetts will see over 95% coverage of the sun, weather permitting.

Talk to an astronomer, make a space-themed automata, and watch NASA’s 2024 Total Solar Eclipse Broadcast on our giant screen. While supplies last, ticket purchasers will receive a free pair of eclipse glasses to experience this solar marvel for yourself.
