Great North American Eclipse Day Pass: April 8

North American Eclipse over USS Little Rock on April 8, 2024.

The Buffalo Naval & Military Park is offering a limited number of day passes for visitors of all ages to experience the Total Eclipse on board USS Little Rock.

Visit the Buffalo Naval Park on Monday, April 8 and get front row access to the Total Solar Eclipse. This will be an extra special event you won’t want to miss!

Buffalo, NY will be in the center of the path of totality at 3:18 PM EDT, which means that we will have a prime location to view the sky darkening as the sun is fully eclipsed by the moon. We can’t think of a better place to watch the Total Eclipse than aboard USS Little Rock at the Buffalo Naval Park.

All day pass ticket holders will have exclusive access to the Buffalo Naval Park from 10:00 AM until 5:00 PM. Purchasing a day pass or participating in our Eclipse Overnight Youth Encampment is the only way to come aboard the ships during the eclipse, as the Naval Park will not be open to the public for regular tours.

All day pass holders will:

– Receive a voucher for lunch on site (Monday only);
– Tour the USS Little Rock, USS The Sullivans, and USS Croaker;
– Participate in educational programs, activities, and special guest talks to learn about life onboard ship and the total eclipse;
– Receive eclipse glasses and other commemorative items;
– Get front row access to watch the Total Eclipse on board USS Little Rock.

Cost: $79 per person (Members receive a 10% discount)

Interested in coming even earlier? We are offering a special eclipse overnight youth encampment program on Sunday, April 7. Stay 1 or 2 nights aboard USS Little Rock and participate in special activities and tours ahead of the total eclipse. Click here if you are interested in participating in our overnight youth encampment.
