Adler Excludes Chicago Kids from Fee Hike

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.
