Beginning July 3 the planetarium will be open for weekend screenings of its sky shows and events in its new observation park and upgraded Doane Observatory.
The Adler Planetarium’s physical building will fully reopen to the public in March of 2022. Wow. I hope they’re remodeling or something.
The Doane is the largest publicly accessible telescope in the Midwest. The current renovation, included a new telescope. the addition of an outdoor observation terrace, upgraded facilities and equipment, and the development of new visitor programming. The new telescope gathers over 5,000 times more light than the unaided human eye, allowing you to see celestial objects that are trillions of miles away.
The Sky Shows, which are all excellent, that will be screening aren’t up on the website yet. On Free Days they were $9 when you first entered the Adler and $13 if you booked them later on during your free day visit. I’m sure they may charge some sort of admission fee on top of whatever the Sky Show ticket price.
