I would expect there would be, especially the Science Centre :)
Although due to the sun's brightness, even at 94.24%, I am not too sure how dim it will actualy get.

There will be definitely be alot of media attention, etc when the event gets nearer. One thing to note is that December is our annual monsoon month & season and a cloudy month during the day time in general (with 1 or 2 rare clear nights). Hopefully on this day, the clouds will not be in the way during the day time . Fingers crossed. :)
