We really enjoyed this place. A lot of informative exhibits and interactive experiences. Kids will really enjoy it and have a great time while learning something too. Also a cute area for toddlers and smaller kids. I would definitely say split your day between here and Shedd if you can. You'll enjoy both.
Not exactly the most exciting place, but it's a really great visit to enjoy some time out with the family, or to go on a date if you're into space. Relatively inexpensive, and the staff is very warm and welcoming as well. Definitely a must visit if you're here in Chicago (Along with all the other museums and big attractions!) Overall a really enjoyable place. You can also get stars named after people (an excellent birthday gift or a good gift to a someone with a really unique name)
I found this place to be very lackluster. I admit that I may be biased, as a St. Louis resident, because we have such a great science center and planetarium... but I tried to be objective. I just could not connect with anything at this place. Nothing was particularly informative, fun, or interesting. "Space" and the universe itself both lend such endless opportunity for exploration and Adler barely took any liberty in doing so.
Its a planetarium!! So many great things to see and do. Space nuts rejoice!! Shows are not to shabby and its never too crowded. Amazing views of the lake!
If you are a science lover, or a nature admirer, this is a must visit place. Watched the show - destination solar system - and it was worth every penny.. the river walk along side is awesome too..
