Private Programs

Eclipse  Programming

Want to schedule a program about the upcoming Total Solar Eclipse?

Museum educators are leading family-friendly programming to teach people about the Total Solar Eclipse occurring on April 8th, 2024. This unique event happening in our region won’t occur in the Finger Lakes again until 2144!

We are excited to offer eclipse programs for a variety of ages and groups- great for scouts, youth groups, and school groups. Private Eclipse programs will include education about the scientific background of the eclipse, activities, and crafts.
