Lots of kids at the end of the year on field trips. Better to attend in the fall during the week if you want a quieter experience with the ability to participate in the hands on displays.

From Our Editors

Before bright lights and towering skyscrapers commandeered the night sky, Chicago sprawled beneath the stars. At the Adler, a perforated metal sphere filters out the light pollution, giving a glimpse into what the city sky might have looked like circa 1913. Within the observatory, guests can explore the entire universe, gauging its distance by sending themselves an e-postcard from Neptune (which arrives in four hours) or the Andromeda galaxy (which arrives in 2.5 million years).
