City Modern Museum Skyline Waterfront

HOST AN EVENT THAT IS OUT OF THIS WORLD

Reserve a front row seat to the Universe in one of the museum’s two domed theaters, enjoy a selection of self-directed and staff-facilitated activities, explore 60,000 square feet of exhibitions, and see the sky as you never have before through the Doane Observatory’s research-quality telescope.

The Adler features unique and beautiful spaces, great food, and a view of Chicago’s skyline that will take your breath away. Our experienced event and catering teams will help you design the perfect package to meet your needs. Whether you’re hosting a seated event for 50 people or a reception for 1,200, your guests will be dazzled by the city lights, the excellent service, and the wonders of the Universe.

Corporate & Social Events

Come for the skyline. Stay for the science. The view of Chicago’s skyline from the museum is reason enough to get your corporate guests out of the uninspiring hotel conference room. But did you know the Adler is the only private event space in Chicago that invites corporate guests to embrace their inner explorer? Help your guests unlock their creative potential and critical thinking skills with hands-on science activities or a mind-expanding sky show.

Weddings

On your special day, the Universe should revolve around you! With an award-winning view of Chicago’s skyline and the entire known Universe as your stage, the Adler is the perfect backdrop for your special event. Our experienced staff will work with you to design a menu and set the mood for your celebration, whether it’s a cocktail party or a wedding reception.
