Are you Totally (Eclipse) ready for Monday? The Museum (located along the path of Totality in Kansas City) will be OPEN that day. Please join us inside to stay cool and then outside in Memorial Courtyard to witness the phenomenon! Note: Due to safety concerns associated with the solar eclipse, the Liberty Memorial Tower will be unavailable on Aug. 21.

Be advised that sunglasses will not protect you from the twilight that’s coming and neither will these 1917 Steel Wilmer Model Eye Defense Visors from our collection. Without proper protective eye wear, or another safe viewing method, the sun’s UV radiation can burn the retinas in your eyes and cause permanent damage.

Shawn Mcginnispolarized sunglasses, if you take them apart, then arrange the lenses so that the polarization is 90 degrees to each other. This will let No light through. Then sun being so bright you will see it as a dot through the blackness. This worked for me during the last eclipse.

Rebecca AllisonThe best safe low tech way to view the eclipse is to look at the image of the sun on still water. Set out a bucket or pan of water and look at the sun as reflected on the water surface.

Edward WittkofskiI arrive on Sunday. Because of the forecast, it looks as though I will have to drive to Jefferson City to get a full view. I have scheduled Tuesday to spend the whole day at the museum. I may have to come back on Wednesday morning before my flight home!
