Waters of the World
Travel the world in 80 habitats.
Dive into Oceans, from coastal kelp forests to the seafloor. Explore the self-contained ecosystems of Islands and Lakes. 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.

Caribbean Reef

Take a 360-degree tour of an underwater reef community.
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.

Amazon Rising

Take an exotic journey in the Amazon, home to one-third of all living things.
Watch out for anacondas and piranhas, spiders, rays and a camouflaged caiman. 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.

It was a great experience from the tickets to the actual Aquarium. I'll certainly be using this site to purchase tickets again. Didn't use uber credit.

I was a little nervous to buy here but decided to. Saved a bunch of money and time. I would strongly recommend.

This was the best deal I was able to find. 100% success and simple to use (even you don't need to print as long as you have order number on your phone). I am not a part of the 365 for sure but one of users! As I spent so many minutes in searching for the coupons which seemed to be usable but turned out useless, I am writing this review to help someone there!

With this pass, 1) my sister and I got to skip the long line at the entrance, 2) save money on our first Uber trip and 3) enjoy our visit at the Shedd aquarium. To watch 4d movies, you must pay an extra fee of $5, but we didn't get that. Overall, it was a pleasant experience and we got the bang for our buck.

Great deal made for an easy decision to buy tickets through 365.
