Adler Excludes Chicago Kids from Fee Hike

Chicago Adults, Seniors and Non-residents Will Pay $2 More

    Pressure from the city's most powerful alderman prompted Adler Planetarium to not include Chicago kids in its plan to raise admission.

    The Planetarium wanted to hike fees by $2 across-the-board but altered the plan after Ald. Ed Burke characterized it as "uncaring” in a prolonged recession.

    The fee hike will now be limited to Chicago adults, seniors and non-residents, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    The Adler Planetarium has not raised its admission fee since 2007, when it was increased by $1.
