Planet Explorers is the most immersive, hands-on exhibit ever created for families at Adler Planetarium! Young visitors and their caregivers have the opportunity to plan, prepare, and travel to the recently discovered and inhabited “Planet X” in this unique 8,000 square foot gallery.

The experience begins in a Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired home, where families can explore details of their own planet and stargaze in a backyard setting. Next is Mission Control and preparations for space travel that culminates with a rocket launch sequence. While in space the visitors can explore a Space Station prior to preparing the Lander for approach to “Planet X”. Once there, guests can search for signs of life, explore the terrain on X MOVER mini-vehicles and make discoveries at the Planet X Research Station.
