Mission Statement

The mission of the Adler Planetarium is to inspire exploration and understanding of our universe.


Max Adler, a senior officer and early stockholder in Sears, Roebuck and Company, decided in the early 1920s to invest in a facility that would benifit future generations of Chicagoans. He had heard about a dramatic new device called a "planetarium" that was being demonstrated in Germany. He went to see it and was so impressed that he promplty decided to construct in Chicago the firest modern planetarium in the Western Hempishere.
