Continue the Planetarium’s 60th anniversary celebrations with an exclusive MOS journey!

The Museum of Science has been engaging curious minds in Boston for nearly 180 years. Next year, we will bring you beyond the Museum for the experience of a lifetime.

Join us on an exclusive, first-of-its-kind Museum of Science journey to South America!
Guided by Charles Hayden Planetarium Director Danielle LeBlanc, Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society Martin Ratcliffe, and Museum educators, you’ll witness the total solar eclipse on July 2, 2019 under the Chilean skies–the clearest in our hemisphere.

Sleep under the stars in a luxurious campsite directly within the path of totality.
Enjoy special lectures with our portable telescopes, interactive science talks, photography workshops, stargazing walks, world-renowned food and wine, and the wondrous wilderness of the Chilean desert, already home to the greatest concentration of astronomical observatories in the world.

Space for this family-friendly (12+) experience is extremely limited and available on a first-to-register basis.
