The Adler Planetarium in Chicago opened a new permanent exhibition geared towards the younger set – 3 to 8 year olds. It is called Planet Explorers and is an immersion experience. Children can act as mission control specialists, blast off in a giant rocket, visit a fictional planet known as Planet X, and learn what life would be life as a space explorer studying a new planet.
Just as exciting as the new exhibit is that you guys can see it for FREE on certain days. Here is a list of the upcoming discount days when general admission is free. The exhibition does not have an extra fee associated with it so it would also be free on these days.
- Tuesday April 20 & 27

- June Discount Week (June 7-11)
- September Discount Week (Sept 13-17)
- Tuesday December 7, 14, & 21
