“America's First Planetarium”
The Adler Planetarium — America's First Planetarium — was founded in 1930 by Chicago business leader Max Adler. The museum is home to three full-size theaters, extensive space science exhibitions, and one of the world's most important antique astronomical instrument collections on display. The Adler is a recognized leader in science education, with a focus on inspiring young people, particularly women and minorities, to pursue careers in science.
We got a Chicago City Pass, and Adler was one of our choices. Located near other popular attractions also. You'll probably spend a few hours here depending how much you enjoy the solar system.... Read more
Checking out the planetarium in Chicago and one of the first ones built in America. I saw this on a Youtube episode and wanted to see what this was all about. This place would be great for kids... Read more
Cool to have a planetarium nearby so +1 just for that, otherwise TOO MUCH reading, too little doing. Probably one of the worst museums in Chicago I just wanted to see stars through a telescope... Read more
