America’s original planetarium, Adler, was built in 1930 and is still a giant of architecture and space science. It’s a definite must for any visit to Chicago – as is a stay in one of these epic hotels, now bookable on Culture Trip.
More than half a million visitors come to Adler Planetarium every year for its world-beating space-science exhibitions and three sky theaters, with projected views of the night sky. Its location – on an offshore island on Lake Michigan – also offers some of the best panoramas of the city’s skyline, making it perfect for those Kodak moments. But it can be hard to pick a place to stay in Chicago’s crowded – and equally impressive – hotel scene, so we’ve selected the best for every pocket and special interest.
