Summer Worlds Tour
Summer Worlds Tour offers a week of adventures in Chicago’s premier museums for children entering kindergarten through fifth grade in the fall of 2019. Campers will explore the moon’s past and imagine its future at the Adler Planetarium, encounter the incredible world of bugs at The Field Museum, and investigate underwater environments at the Shedd Aquarium. Activities include investigating exhibits, hands-on activities, creating original art projects, playing learning games, and having lunch along the shore of Lake Michigan.
For more information, please view 2018’s Tour Guide.
Summer Worlds Tour has been an incredible success for the Adler Planetarium, the Field Museum, and Shedd Aquarium over the years. It has given Chicagoland kids a chance to learn and grow at all three institutions in between school years—an especially important time to keep young minds active! But to make room for new adventures on Museum Campus, the 2019 Summer Worlds Tour will be the last.
Stay tuned for more information on new summer programs in natural history, animals and the environment, and the mysteries of space from the Adler, the Field, and the Shedd in 2020!
