Experience the Eclipse

August 21, 2017 @ 9:00 am PDT

Please keep the following information in mind if you are planning to attend the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History’s Eclipse Viewing Event on Monday, August 21:

  • The Eclipse event will begin at 9:00 a.m., and guests should meet at the whale skeleton in front of the Museum. At 9:00 a.m., guests will be directed to the Palmer Observatory and Fleischmann Auditorium for various Eclipse activities. Guests will be able to access these two areas at no charge during the Eclipse, but any non-members who wish to explore other areas of the Museum will need to pay for admission at the main entrance once the Museum opens at 10:30 a.m.
  • The Eclipse will be most visible at 10:18 a.m., pending weather.
  • We are expecting a large turnout for this event, so please arrive early to help with the flow of traffic. Museum parking will be limited, and due to space limitations and the safety of our guests, we will only be able to accommodate the first 500 guests.
  • Eclipse glasses will be provided to guests, while supplies last. Eclipse glasses are no longer available for purchase in the Museum Store. For those in attendance who do not receive Eclipse glasses, there will be other ways to view the Eclipse, including NASA’s live stream which will be shown in Fleischmann Auditorium. You can also find information about safe ways to view the Eclipse on our website.
  • Guests will be able to view NASA’s live stream of the Total Eclipse from various points across the country, even if the sun is not visible in Santa Barbara.
