About this event

The Intrepid Museum will host a special celebration offering visitors the chance to watch the solar eclipse from the dramatic setting of the flight deck of the legendary aircraft carrier, USS Intrepid on Monday, April 8. While onboard, they can learn more about this cosmic phenomenon from knowledgeable Museum educators as they explore the science of eclipses against the stunning backdrop of the New York City skyline and the Hudson River. 

The eclipse will begin around 2:00pm ET, with 89% totality for New York City set to occur at 3:25pm ET. Commemorative eclipse glasses will be provided to Museum guests at no additional cost during their visit, subject to availability. Due to capacity constraints, access to the flight deck for viewing will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Guests should arrive early to secure their spot. Free with Museum Admission.
