Visit Rivers—big and small—and learn more about our local waters in the new At Home on the Great Lakes exhibit. Meet hundreds of amazing animals, from tiny mantella frogsto a a giant octopus, from a Grand Cayman blue iguana to Nile knifefish, and from moon jellies to sea stars. We even have map turtles, in case you get lost.

Follow a green sea turtle. Peek at a moray eel in a rocky crevice. Watch regal rays glide by. Get eye-to-eye with parrot fish and sharks. Visit Caribbean Reef, Shedd’s award-winning 90,000-gallon circular habitat in the grand rotunda.

In churning river channels, still lakes and even flooded treetops look for tetras, turtles and fruit-eating fish called tambaqui. See how the region’s animals, plants and people adapt to the water’s dramatic annual rise and fall.

Abbott Oceanarium

The Abbott Oceanarium immerses you in the vibrant coastal ecosystem of beluga whales, Pacific white-sided dolphins, sea otters and sea lions. You’ll also find a host of fishes and invertebrates that make their homes where freshwater flows into the ocean or where tides turn seascapes to landscapes and back again each day. Use our self-guided map to discover how animals are linked to each other, their homes and you.

Polar Play Zone

Kids have a place at Shedd that they can call their own—Polar Play Zone. It’s cool as ice and twice as nice! The penguins think so, too.

Play! Splash! Pretend! What would you like to be? A sleek sliding penguin? A deep-sea explorer? How about both? In Polar Play Zone, you can slip into a penguin suit and try being a bird in the Icy South play area. From there, head to the Icy North to explore the belugas’ Arctic waters in a kid-sized submarine. Don’t forget to shake hands—or is it arms?—with colorful sea stars in the touch pools. In Polar Play Zone, you’ll learn about polar opposites—big and small, fast and slow, shallow and deep, even north and south—while you play.

Our day at Shedd Aquarium was a huge success! We took the advice of online reviews and arrived at opening time. Buying our tickets in advance enabled us to walk right in avoiding the ticket line. We enjoyed viewing all the exhibits without large crowds for several hours. The aquatic show was first rate! We were so impressed!

I was hesitant to buy from anywhere other than the aquarium, but these worked flawlessly. We were able to bypass the line which was easily over an hour long, and go to will call to enter. Would definitely recommend.

My children and I had a very enjoyable day! We just marvel at the uniqueness of all the different fish and animals. We also loved the dolphin show and being able to go below and watch both the dolphins and Beluga Whales. Thank you for a memorable experience! We hope to return for a third visit sometime soon.
