Chicago's Adler Planetarium is America's first planetarium and a premiere resource for inspiring the next generation of space explorers with its many must-see live shows, exhibits and events.
With this full-day admission ticket, enjoy the benefits an Anytime All-Access Pass provides at the world’s most advanced planetarium. Discover all the live shows, including Cosmic Wonder, a journey to the deepest reaches of space, from the birth of stars to the mystery of dark matter; Destination Solar System, a breathtaking tour of the sun, moon and planets in the year 2096; Skywatch Live, the premiere planetarium experience that navigates the abundance of objects that make up our universe and many more.
Also, see all the exhibitions. At Mission Moon, find out how the United States became the first nation to put a man on the Moon, what it’s really like to be an astronaut and why it takes an entire team to explore uncharted worlds. In Our Solar System, touch a piece of the Moon, the planet Mars or a distant asteroid. And at the Universe: A Walk Through Space and Time, travel to the distant corners of the cosmos and witness how the universe evolved more than 13.7 billion years ago, from the Big Bang to this morning’s sunrise.
Additionally, enjoy access to the historic Atwood Sphere — to experience the night sky over Chicago as it appeared in 1913 — and select two Sky Shows upon arrival.
Hungry? Visit Café Galileo's by Food For Thought for a relaxing lunch of soups, sandwiches, salads, flatbreads, beverages and desserts — and the best view of the beautiful Chicago skyline. On the way out, stop by the Adler Store for educational toys and games, space books and videos, official Adler gear and much more.
