Imagine the Moon

Now Playing Through March
Tuesday – Saturday at 3:00pm and Saturday at Noon

The Adler Planetarium’s Imagine the Moon delves into the myriad ways in which the Moon has sparked human creativity, knowledge, and curiosity since ancient times. Across cultures and continents, people have envisioned the Moon in diverse forms: be it a distant enigma, a luminous orb adorning the night sky, a target for space exploration, or a celestial body with intertwined origins to our own planet. Commemorating five decades since the groundbreaking Apollo missions, Imagine the Moon illuminates the enduring fascination the Moon has held throughout human civilization. Stop in to the Ella Sharp Museum to see this wonderful, all-ages show. Hours and availability on the show schedule below!
