Travel Without Limits



The Adler Planetariu­m was the very first Planetariu­m in the US. It's more than a museum: it's a laboratory, a classroom, and a community for everyone who wants to explore the universe. They reach millions of curious stargazers each year through their youth programs, neighbourh­ood skywatchin­g events, peoplepowe­red research, and other events.

With this community-centered philosophy comes an inclusive approach to ensuring everyone has an amazing experience. Enter through the Leffmann Education Center, with wide push-button doors, and make your way through the planetariu­m with elevators that access all floors. You can use your own mobility aid to get around, or borrow a manual wheelchair from the box offices, free of charge.

The box offices also provide assisted listening devices for guests who are d/Deaf or hearing impaired. Hot tip: make sure your phone or tablet is fully charged so you can access the closed captioning of the Adler sky shows on your own device through

Accessible restrooms are located on the mid-level, with a single-occupancy room in the Leffmann if needed.

You can find several accessible parking spaces at the Chicago Park District lot adjacent to the Adler, or arrive by public transport at the nearby Roosevelt stop (100% of the Chicago Transit Authority's buses and railcars are wheelchair accessible).
