Daily 10am-4pm Adler After Dark (third Thursday of every month)
Choosing among the Museum Campus attractions can be daunting. However, the incredibly vivid exhibits at Adler Planetarium hold even the shortest attention span. Three digitally advanced theaters take you into our chartered universe. One theater features StarRider, an interactive virtual reality that gives visitors the control over a 3-D simulation of space travel. Adler's President suggests it's basically like flying your own spaceship.
Best for Attractions near the McCormick Place Convention Center Because: Adler After Day is a 21+ event that occurs every third Thursday of the month. Tickets include admission, sky shows and cash bar until 9:30pm.
Best for Family-Friendly Museums Because: On family-friendly Far Out Fridays, visitors get to see shows, view the night sky and learn how to set up and use a telescope.
