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.

one hour wait just to get in

I went here on a saturday afternoon and that was def the wrong time to go. I had to wait in line outside for 45 min then another 15 mins inside the building to pay for a ticket. It however, was worth the wait. The set up was nice and they have really cool displays. They have a lunch area with great food although expensive. Lastly, I caught a dolphin show at no extra charge. I would go back just not on a weekend afte... view more

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. \r SOS...Shame on the Shedd..End this show now before word gets around..It's already not good.

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.\r 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!

Great tourist attraction

I could spend all day in this place. There is always something to see and enjoy. This is the perfect place to take friends or family who visit the city.
