The planetarium's Sky Theater utilizes a Zeiss projector to display the night sky on the building's interior dome.

Founded by philanthropist Max Adler, the Adler Planetarium was the first planetarium built in America and is currently the oldest in the United States. Located in Chicago, Illinois on the shore of Lake Michigan, the facility resides on Chicago's Museum Campus, located in Grant Park, beside the Field Museum of Natural History and the John G. Shedd Aquarium.

The building was designed by architect Ernest Grunsfeld, JR and built in 1930. Each of the building's twelve corners has a plaque representing the signs of the zodiac.

The Adler Planetarium was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1987 and is on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.
