Eclipse Activities – Little Rock Zoo

This April 8, 2024, the City of Little Rock will be in the path of totality for a solar eclipse.  Total obscurity of the sun will occur in Little Rock for several minutes and the eclipse phenomenon will happen for a duration of 2 hours and 38 minutes.

This incredible event will not be repeated in this area for another twenty years, so the chance to witness it should not be missed.  Come enjoy local entertainment, learn about solar eclipses with our experts, and watch this memorable phenomenon with the resident animals at the Little Rock Zoo. Enjoy the eclipse at the Zoo, and your admission gives you the opportunity to observe how Zoo animals react to this miracle of Mother Nature.
