All Ages

Learning is encouraged for all ages at the Adler! We offer programming and initiatives that allow anyone to get involved in science—no matter if you’re one year old or 100!

Follow along with one of our high-altitude balloon flights with Far Horizons, help real scientists classify real research (and maybe make a cool discovery!) with Adler Zooniverse, or get answers to all of your astronomy and science-related questions right here on our website.

Wondering where the best place to view stars near Chicagoland is? See something in the night sky, but can’t figure out what it was? We suggest using one of our online resources to help guide you on your way. We’ve also compiled some frequently asked questions which can be a great starting point for research.

Keep looking up!


Your all-access pass to our universe!
