Adler Planetarium's newest exhibition teaches you all about the Universe. Featuring various multi-media interactive stations, The Universe: A Walk through Space and Time is a mix of fun and education.

  • As you walk through, you'll first learn about the history of the Universe.  You're invited to explore the big questions - how large is the Universe?  Are we alone? 
  • Next you'll see the wonders of the Universe thanks to spectacular overhead projection.  You can zoom from one location to another, viewing high resolution images from the world's best telescopes.
  • Your kids can play in interactive stations too.  They can look like an astronaut on the moon.  They can also send electronic postcards to themselves from galaxies, traveling at the speed of light.

The Universe: A Walk through Space and Time is located in the Adler's newly renovated Pritzker Hall of Cosmology.
