Adler Planetarium

Chicago, USA
4.6 / 5
Space Theater and Museum, built at the expense of retired businessman Max Adler. The first visitors were taken to the planetarium in 1930. Thanks to the generous cash infusions of the former businessman, a fairly large number of navigation and astronomical mechanisms were purchased for the exposition. The Chicago Planetarium is the first planetarium in the United States.

It’s one of the most beautiful and oldest planetarium I have ever visited. Don’t get fooled by the name, it looks brand new, super clean and can easily spend around 3hrs-4hrs there. Their shows are amazing. Definitely plan on attending “Destination s.. Read more »


We were there last weekend and used our City Passes. The experience was great. I highly recommend their theaters. Their cafeteria was packed, and that's because the food was good. I really enjoyed the pizza they had. We would love to go back.

Being retired military, entrance to the Planetarium was inexpensive as the museum entrance fee is waived for up to five guests for Active Military and Veteran’s. We only paid for the show we saw “Destination Solar System”. It was in the domed Grainge.. Read more »


The museum is tidy and well-kept, and there is not much wrong with it. I just find myself bored after one hour whenever a take a visit. Maybe it's because I am not terribly interested in planets, or maybe it's because I've already seen everything a.. Read more »


We've worked at Adler Planetarium many times throughout the years and it's become one of our favorite spaces. Not only is the venue staff friendly and a pleasure to work with, they are dedicated to success in events and weddings. Matt Kelley and Kyle.. Read more »
