Adler Planetarium

Outreach Requests

Community Outreach

Want to explore space but can't make it down to the planetarium? Let the planetarium come to you!

Whether you're hosting a star party or a community science fair, the Adler Planetarium is committed to reaching and engaging audiences throughout Chicagoland. If you or your organization is planning a community event, and are interested in having the Adler provide astronomy/space science educational activities or telescope viewing, please complete the Outreach Request form.

Where Do We Go?

We typically focus our outreach efforts on community and educational organizations, including: 

  • Libraries
  • Community Centers
  • Schools
  • Parks & Park District Facilities 
  • Science/Maker Fairs, Star Parties, etc. 

At this time, we give preference to events located in a 35-mile radius from the museum. All requests must be submitted at least 6 weeks prior to your event for consideration. The Outreach Team meets on the first Monday of every month. We will contact you shortly thereafter should we have the ability, staff, and resources to accommodate your request.

Thank you for your interest in Adler Planetarium!
