Your all-access pass to our universe!

Adler Anywhere

Connect with us, with science and astronomy, with our universe—and with other people—exactly where you are!

On a cosmic scale, there’s practically no distance between us. We’re all flying through space on the same little blue planet, and we’re all looking up at the same sky.

The Adler Planetarium is not only a building—it is anywhere people gather to spot a constellation, see themselves in the life story of a scientist, or sing a song about black holes. In classrooms and living rooms all over the world, we remind people that they are not so far away from us, from each other, or from the stars.
