Roll up your sleeves and let curiosity be your guide. At the Adler Planetarium, you’ll find hands-on, minds-on activities, experiences, and shows about the universe that will blow your mind!
Our award-winning sky shows are not to be missed. Imagine the Moon with us, search for a new ninth planet, take a fast-paced tour of the solar system, get to know the sky above Chicago, and fly through the stars at impossible speeds in our state-of-the-art theaters. Check out trailers for all of our sky shows!
The Adler Planetarium is excited to announce we will be opening our doors to guests once again beginning July 3 for weekend screenings of our famous sky shows as well as select public observing events in our new observation park and upgraded Doane Observatory. A new telescope— the largest publicly accessible telescope in the Midwest—was installed in the Doane in February 2020. Dates and ticket information will be announced on the website soon! The museum will fully reopen in March 2022.
