The Great American Eclipse

The Great American Eclipse 2017

ScienceWorks celebrates this once-in-a-lifetime eclipse event! Ashland will experience 93% totality of the eclipse, and ScienceWorks wants you on our lawn to experience it with us! We'll have eclipse viewers of all sizes, astronomy activities all week and subject matter specialists on hand to talk about how an eclipse works.

ScienceWorks will open at 8AM this Monday, so you can come in and grab a spot on our lawn.
The eclipse begins around 9:15AM, and full coverage should occur at 10:18AM, lasting for 2 minutes and 40 seconds.

Regular museum rates apply for the day, and it is highly recommended that you purchase your entrance tickets in advance for the day, so that you aren't stuck in line! We're anticipating several hundred visitors for the day. Your admission for the day includes a FREE pair of solar eclipse viewing glasses!



Before and after the Eclipse, we'll have solar and astronomy activities inside and outside the museum!
  • Eclipse demonstrations
  • Build a solar system
  • Make your own pinhole eclipse viewer
  • Stomp Rockets
  • Solar panel demonstrations with True South Solar
  • Ask an Expert! - specific volunteers will have NASA training about the eclipse and can answer your questions!
  • Solar sketching (afternoon only)
If you're unable to join us for the eclipse, viewing sunglasses will be on sale for $1 at our Explore Store through August 23 or while supplies last.
