Join us at the Alamo to watch the upcoming solar eclipse! Much of San Antonio will be in the direct viewing path for the total solar eclipse on Monday, April 8, 2024.

The 99.9% eclipse over downtown is expected to appear as a partial eclipse around 12:14 p.m. with peak eclipse viewing at 1:34 p.m., and end around 2:55 p.m. when the partial eclipse begins to disappear.

Protect your eyes with our commemorative solar eclipse glasses that feature the iconic parapet roofline of the Alamo! These eclipse glasses are safe for direct solar viewing, made with pride in the USA, and meet requirements for ISO 12312.2-2015 certification. One size fits most. Available onsite at the Alamo Welcome Center for $5/each.
