Explore Space With Us!
Roll up your sleeves and let curiosity be your guide. At the Adler Planetarium, you’ll find hands-on, minds-on activities and explore mind-blowing facts about the Universe. With two domed theaters, a selection of self-directed and staff-facilitated activities, 60,000 square feet of exhibitions and the Doane Observatory’s research-quality telescope, the Adler casts visitors in the role of scientist, engineer, astronaut, and creative problem solver.
Whether you’re a member of a travel association or working independently, whether you’re leading a group of students, adults, or seniors, the Adler treats tour operators like stars. Contact us for details on all of the special programs we offer.
The Adler Planetarium is a stellar venue for your music performance group. Play Gustav Holst’s The Planets under the planets inside the museum or serenade the Chicago skyline from our outdoor performance space. Treat our guests to a family-friendly soundtrack as they explore the Universe with us. After the performance, your group will be able to enjoy the museum and take in a sky show or two.
