We stopped by mid-afternoon following a long morning at the Shedd. They accept the ASTC reciprocal pass, saving some money. Picked a show in one of the domes, and off we went. The main dome theater was an amazing picture. Sit near the back to get the best view. There was live narration, which I could have done without, but the picture was worth it. The rest of the planetarium has some great history and some interactive exhibits. Good to kill a couple hours will small kids, maybe half day if you take your time without kids.

We all enjoyed the Planetarium & the bonus was the BEST photo opportunity of the Chicago skyline!!! Alex was great with her SKYWATCH live explanation of the night sky, constellations & zodiac signs. Really enjoyed it all!!

This planetarium does a great job at providing stimulating content for all ages. I felt like every exhibit had something to offer me as an adult which is hard to do. Many educational places cater to childrens educational levels but not so much to college educated adults, so this was a pleasant surprise. The shows are worth the extra money. Imagine the Moon was perfect and beautiful.

I was a afraid that that all the members in my family were not going to appreciate the planetarium but surprisingly we were all very much “entertained” . There was a good mix for the young and old , interested and uninterested, reader and non reader for enjoy for several hours. I really appreciated the tribute to hidden figures as well. And all of the volunteer led demonstrations.

The Adler Planetarium was an excellent attraction to visit during our time in Chicago. It has multiple exhibits to see in addition to the 3D movie theaters. It has a lot of interactive displays. You need to allow at least 3 hours there in order to do it all.
