Solar Eclipse Event at the Pink Palace
Monday, August 21 • 12 noon – 2pm
The sun is always shining on the Pink Palace Museum…except for the two or so minutes of total Solar Eclipse, Monday, August 21, 2017!
Celebrate, enjoy, learn and most of all, experience this once-in-a-lifetime event at the Pink Palace Museum. While it’s true that Memphis will only see an almost total (94%) eclipse, we are making the most of it.
Join us on the Pink Palace Mansion front lawn for:
- Safe, viewing telescopes
- Scale model solar system walk
- Eclipse activity tables
- Eclipse educators and Planetarium astronomers
- NASA live feed of the Solar Eclipse on our Planetarium lobby monitors
- World’s largest fully functioning solar eclipse glasses (courtesy of American Paper Optics in Bartlett)
Since it is never safe to stare into the sun, stop by our Museum Shop and purchase your safe viewing Solar Eclipse glasses. They’re selling fast so make sure you get them ahead of time!
