Known as one of the best aquariums in the United States, John G. Shedd Aquarium is central to the museum scene in Chicago. Exhibits are astoundingly good and the museum is featured as a member of the Green Museum Initiative - using environmentally sound practices.
Had so much fun – This place was great. We visited this place last week and it was fun together with my family. The kids were pretty much enjoying watching the show. Definitely we will be back here. A wonderful place.
Great family activity! – Great family activity, we go there at least once every summer with the kids - never gets boring!
FantaFlop – I am not sure how you can have a baby buluga whale and have a show like this. What a missed learning opportunity. This is by far the worst executive decision I have ever seen. This shows concept, idea, and funding should have never happened.
SOS...Shame on the Shedd..End this show now before word gets around..It's already not good.
Jaw Dropping – Most amazing place ever! It really is jaw droppin. They have everything you can ever imagine and the dolphin show is pretty cool. Must see!!!
FanFreakingTastic – I just adore this place ever since I was a little girl - take a day off life and come here - make sure to find out which exhibits are showing at which time and GO !
OMG It was SO boring! – My husband and I spent fifty dollars on tickets to see the "AMAZING" Shedd Aquarium because it was all hyped up as one of the best attractions in Chicago. Yeah... not so much. After paying FIFTY bucks we essential walked around and looked at fish bowls. Oh, lets not forget FANTASEA!!!! That was fun. Wait, NO, it was poorly acted and boring. We left after about ten minutes. Save your money.
My Childhood Favorite – The Shedd has been a favorite of mine since my parents took me to visit the aquarium at an early age. I love the way they have the aquarium mapped out , and how the group different species together. And at every visit I always learn something new or find a new favorite.
The gift shop is another great stop to make to get gifts for friends and family.
Fun for Every Age – It doesn't matter how old you are or how many times you've been, the Shedd Aquarium always provides a fun time. This museum always has a great feature exhibit that's worth the trip, along with the must-see dolphin show. Bring your camera because the city views from the Shedd are breathtaking!
Amaaazing place! – Amazing place. Friendly staff, great attractions. Beluga whale, penguins, sharks, seahorse, coral in downtown chicago. 4-D Planet Earth was an amazing experience. Missed dolphin show, but heard its awesome. A little steep in $$, however, well worth it! Would recommend to a friend.
Great place to visit – This is a chicago staple. It is a great aquarium with an awesome view of Lake Michigan. The Oceanarium is very interesteing, along with the mammal show.
