About this place
Strap a mask and flippers onto your imagination and chart a course to Shedd Aquarium. Have you ever gotten eye-to-eye with a dolphin? Or met a penguin on a stroll to the South Pole? Or immersed yourself in an Amazon flooded forest? At Shedd, it's all possible.

Tips from locals
I love the Shedd. Due to COVID regulations, you need advance tickets and you must make a reservation time- however this also means that the aquarium is much less crowded than it usually is and there are no school field trips. Fun for adults and kids!
You are sure to get your fill of sea creatures at the world famous Shedd aquarium.
Right on Lake Michigan, the Shedd Aquarium is a state of the art facility that makes a great day trip.
