  • My husband brought me here for my birthday this year. The exhibits are interesting and well done. The 4d theater and One World shows were informational and entertaining. Sea Otters, Penguins, Beluga Whales, Sea Turtle, Sea Lion as well as many small marine life exhibits make this well worth your time! I love that the Shedd works so hard on conservation and animal life rescue!

  • I think there should be a capacity here. For the most part it was a nice visit. Until about 2pm. Then the place got crazy. People pushing to see things. The cafe was not open you had to get water from the locker area, that was packed come 2pm. No lockers were available. The exhibits were nice and the dolphins were cool.

  • Really nice aquarium with a lot of fun exhibits to check out. However I really don't care for places that make you pay extra for different exhibits. Just have one fee and let everyone enjoy the whole facially. Great for kids and adults I would say if you're in Chicago definitely check it out but be aware that if you want to see everything it casts a lot more than just the entry fee.

  • My experience here was great. We came on a Monday which was crowded but not too crowded that you felt squished. we should of ordered our tickets online to beat the crown but it wasn't too bad. when we got up to the front desk the prices weren't too bad for 5 people. If you get the Shedd pass you get to see all the fish and the whales and dolphins which doesn't sound like a lot but it was enough to satisfy my family. At the end when we went into the gift shop there were so many options to pick from so you had a wide variety of things to choose. My overall experience was great and I would definitely go there again.

  • As Illinois Residents, the website states that basic admission is $8. The woman at the front desk didn't seem to want to sell us this ticket, saying "we don't like to push this one" and "you won't see hardly anything with this ticket". I'm a college student and just simply wanted to see a few things in the HOUR AND A HALF before the aquarium closed, so I really didn't feel like paying $35 for a ticket I didn't need. After showing the woman that the $8 ticket is offered on the website, and saying that if they say they are offering it she should honor it, she gave it to me. For $8 I actually felt like I did see a lot. I stayed until closing and loved seeing the stingrays. Sometimes the tanks seem rather small for the animals in them, but that's nothing that hasn't been said before. Of all the staff I encountered, none of them seemed helpful. They all just seem like money grubbing robots trying to get you to spend more than you want. The gift shop is especially overpriced. Overall, it's probably only worth on a free day.
