Be transported to the outer reaches of the Universe on a visit to Chicago's Adler Planetarium and Astronomy Museum, the first planetarium in the United States. Since 1930 the country's oldest planetarium has been delighting audiences with the spectacle of the night sky. Visit The Universe: A Walk Through Space and Time, Atwood Sphere Experience, Shoot for the Moon exhibit and choose from a range of Sky Shows in Grainger Sky Theater, Definiti Space Theater and Johnson Family Star Theater.
On your self-guided tour you'll visit the historic Atwood Experience identifying the positions of the brightest stars in the night sky and constellations they form. You'll also visit Shoot for the Moon, highlighting the exciting stories of space exploration and America's bold plans to travel to the Moon.

In Adler’s newest exhibit The Universe: A Walk Through Space and Time, be transported to the distant corners of the cosmos and witness how the Universe evolved over 13.7 billion years - from the Big Bang to modern day. Additionally, see a Sky Show in the Grainger Space Theater, Definiti Space Theater or Johnson Family Star Theater. There are over five Sky Shows to choose from and you can select which you would like to see upon arrival.

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.
