    Interested in Space, Science Our Solar System? Then The Adler Planetarium is a must visit for you! Destination Solar System is a great show for all ages. Adler After Dark is a great way for adults to see the all the Planetarium has to offer without sidestepping the little ones. Don’t forget to walk around the outside of the Planetarium as it has some of the best views of our great city Chicago, The view of Lake Michigan is truly beautiful, you could spend almost as much time outside as inside. #CityExperts @GoogleLocalCHI

    Enjoyable planetarium that is moderately sized. Five stars for hosting the Adler After Dark series every month. It’s a great crowd and atmosphere and tons of staff stick around and are excited to talk to you about what they do. Interesting lectures as well.

    I’ve been coming here for longer than I care to admit. Who isn’t fascinated with astronomy? Excellent adventure for the little ones. Definitely keeps them entertained with a myriad of hands on stations and activities. Don’t miss the Sky Theatre experience. The surrounding breakwater is a super cool spot to watch Navy Pier fireworks and the observatory (outside to the east) is even open occasionally. While you’re here take a stroll to the shipwreck (yup that’s what those timbers are near the beach). Shoreline erosion caused by the construction of the planetarium in 1925 exposed the hull of the schooner (unnamed), which is an estimated 140 feet long. A sizeable portion of the ship can be seen just south of the planetarium. A short walk farther south is the Daphne Garden art pieces at on Northerly Island. Enjoy.

    I enjoyed the show they had while I was there. There was the obvious stuff about the milky way galaxy, but I also liked learning about nearby star clusters. The voiceover was done by a professional actor, so it made for a good production. The price was worth it, I would recommend this to my friends and family as a good place to go to learn about space and our nearby stars. It’s amazing to think of the stars that are billions of miles away and see this described visually through the presentation. I am a big fan of Galileo’s scientific discoveries, and liked to learn a little about the history of Astronomy as well. Anyways, the video was good and it covered your full vision. If you are interested in space and astronomy, then this is worth checking out. I even stayed afterwards to ask some questions to one of the people at the door about Neptune and Saturn which are some of my favorite planets.

    You will not really get the kind of exorbitant exhibits you see at the aquarium or the field and science and industry museums, but the planetarium show is pretty good. It is something that I recommend that everyone sees as some point in their lives. There are also lots of astronomy facts and displays around to teach kids about space and the planets and so on.The best part about this place, and you can ask anybody, is that from here you get the best view of the Chicago skyline. And when you are done, there is a beach right next door so you can have fun in the lake and sand for a while before heading home.Great location that everyone should check out.
