Reopening Update

The Adler Planetarium reopened our doors to guests this summer for weekend screenings of our famous sky shows! Tickets are on sale now!  We’re also excited to announce a new public observing program, ‘Scopes at the Adler! We’re welcoming people into the Doane Observatory (which recently got a new 24-inch reflecting telescope) for in-person public observing on clear nights this fall. All of the details can be be found right here. Capacity for ‘Scopes at the Adler events are extremely limited (only 12 tickets!), so you’ll want to join our Facebook Group or follow us on Twitter @adlerplanet to be the first to know when tickets for an evening event drops! Masks are required for all guests and staff for your safety and the safety of those around you.

The museum will fully reopen in March 2022.

If you need even more space in your life, check out our online programs, activities, and exhibits. You can stay up to date by following us on all of your favorite social media platforms (FacebookInstagram, and Twitter) or subscribing to our weekly Space from Home email giving you all the space you need. Join us for one of our live programs, get some tips on stargazing, or tackle an activity whenever the mood strikes. All of our online resources can be found right here.
