Bring someone you love to the Adler After Dark: Planetary Prom at Chicago’s Adler Planetarium May 18, and stay at the nearby and affordable LaQuinta Inn & Suites in historic Hyde Park!

The Adler Planetarium is a Chicago treasure and a world class venue for star gazers. The Adler After Dark: Planetarium Prom is an adults-only event. Guests are invited to put on their dancing shoes, dress up, have an adult beverage, and party like it’s 2017. Explore our funky solar system with hands-on programs, theater shows and special talks on current planetary missions and the search for new planets!  Don’t miss the Doane Observatory, the historic Atwood Sphere, and the Space Visualization Lab!

As one prom attendee wrote last year, “It’s all great fun. I thought it was very nicely planned and very entertaining. I love viewing the planets and the using the telescopes and attending the shows and lectures. It’s the best $20 you can spend in the city.”

The Adler Planetarium is located at the Museum Campus, 1300 South Lake Shore Drive in Chicago. For tickets, go online to and follow the prompts. You must bring a photo ID for this event.
