Alder Planetarium Chicago Museum Campus

Chicago’s Alder Planetarium is within walking distance from Adeline’s Sea Moose and can be added to your Chicago private yacht rental excursion.

For an out-of-this-world experience, look no further than the Adler Planetarium in Chicago.

Extending out into Lake Michigan from its Museum Campus home, this is America’s first planetarium and it has become a recognized leader in science education. Through immersive theater programs, numerous exhibitions and special events such as lectures and viewing parties, journey through the vast universe – from the depths of powerful black holes to the heights of Voyager 1, the farthest human-made object from Earth.
