The Adler Planetarium is a wonderful place to go to learn about our planet and the solar system.
The theater experiences are excellent. The view from Galileo's Cafe is fantastic in that you look out at the Chicago skyline. Took some family there to visit and it was a wonderful time.

The Universe just amazes me with how vast it is. We enjoyed the history and where technology has taken us today.
