LIVE Astronomy Virtual Reality Program

Unleash your inner astronaut to explore the universe during this virtual reality experience! Participants will assemble their Google Cardboard VR kit, then experience Our Planetary Experiment in real time as it is broadcast from the Adler Planetarium in Chicago.

Google Cardboard VR kits will be available on a first come, first serve basis; 50 kits will be available for the program. Participants may keep their VR kit at the end of the evening.

Please note:

  • Program requires the use of individual cell phones.
  • Participants must provide their own smartphone capable of streaming YouTube via WiFi and must install a VR app.
  • It is highly recommended that you install two apps ahead of time: YouTube and Google Cardboard. (Both apps available via Google Play and itunes.)
  • Families may be asked to share their Google Cardboard VR kit, based on availability.

Admission to this one-time program is FREE; all children under 17 must be accompanied by an adult. Please note that Museum exhibits will not be open during this after-hours program.
