Be An Explorer. Become An Adler Member Today!

Already a member?

It took a team of 400,000 people to send NASA astronauts to the Moon and back. And it takes a dedicated community of members to help the Adler Planetarium reach new heights.

Whenever you visit the museum, attend a sky show or a special event, volunteer, or share a mind-blowing space fact with your neighbor, you show that you:

  • Care about fostering creativity and critical thinking on our planet.
  • Love learning (especially about space!).
  • Want scientific communities to be accessible, fun, welcoming, and supportive to all people.

We need YOU to support our next giant leap forward. And with our newly updated membership program, it’s a perfect time to join the Adler family.
