The Solar Eclipse (and a TOTAL eclipse of the sun in some places such as St. Joseph, MO), is upon us and the Museum at Prairiefire is throwing a watch party for this incredible sight! Visit the Museum at Prairiefire from 11:30 AM – 2:30 PM to witness a 99% eclipse of the sun. While we will not see TOTALITY in our location in Overland Park, you will be seeing a partial eclipse with a maximum coverage of 99.3%.
The Museum at Prairiefire is also hosting an all-day tour to St. Joseph, MO for TOTALITY where we, along with the Astronomical Society of Kansas City and our guests, will witness a TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE SUN. For more information email Jennifer Wampler at [email protected]
or call 913-333-3500 for details and donation fee. Space is limited.
The Solar Eclipse Watch Party at the Museum at Prairiefire is FREE for all Museum at Prairiefire guests and will take place on the Prairiefire Wetlands terrace. Check in will take place in the Great Hall inside the museum.
This event is for all ages with families encouraged to experience the solar eclipse together! Enjoy arts and crafts tables, solar eclipse mythology stories, make your own eclipse view lenses and more!
The first 50 Museum at Prairiefire Members to arrive will receive special solar gift bags (limit one per family).
