Eclipse Weekend at the Armstrong Air & Space Museum

April 6 @ 9:00 am - April 8 @ 6:30 pm

Celebrate the 2024 Eclipse in Neil Armstrong’s Hometown

On Monday, April 8, 2024, Ohio will be one of 13 states that experience a total solar eclipse, lasting approximately four minutes in some locations. Coincidentally, the line of totality will pass almost directly over the Armstrong Air & Space Museum in Wapakoneta, Ohio, the birthplace of Apollo 11 astronaut Neil Armstrong.

The rare natural phenomenon is expected to bring in thousands of visitors from the surrounding region and states. Wapakoneta officials are currently underway on formulating exciting plans and activities for the event.

The next total solar eclipse to pass over Ohio until 2099, so don’t miss out on this once in a lifetime experience.

From Saturday through Monday there will be guided tours, children’s activities, and viewing of this once in a lifetime event on the Museum’s grounds.
