Get there early

Go early to avoid the long line. Plan activities for young children when the waiting time for entering aquarium is too long.

Don't take any pocket knifes, guys a lot of you carry them daily however the security desk will take it and refuse to return it.after they said they would just hold onto for you until you complete your visit. So I'm out $40-50 bucks

bring food for the family and eat in the cafeteria. There are lockers available, so you can store your lunch there.

It is better to go during the week. I went on a Saturday and it was crowded.

From Our Editors

Beluga whales and dolphins flip and splash while audiences learn their trainers’ techniques. Elsewhere, an anaconda lounges in a recreated Amazon rainforest and penguins dive in their polar enclosure. Add to that a few snuggly-looking otters and a rescued sea turtle named Nickel and you’ve got the intersection of conservation and spectacle that defines the Shedd.
