Adler Planetarium

Adler Planetarium

One of the landmark attractions in Chicago we did not visit on the inside, was the Adler Planetarium. This venue was the first planetarium in the United States, built in 1930. Scientists in Germany designed the projection device that would display a replica of the night sky. Max Adler, a prominent Chicago businessman of the Sears, Roebuck Company, had the foresight to invest in building this planetarium in Chicago to benefit its present and future citizens. My next trip to Chicago will include a starry, starry tour.
