Join us for a day at the Shedd Aquarium! With the Option of doing a Behind the Scenes Tour!

Enjoy the day at The Shedd Aquarium! The Shedd Aquarium's mission is to spark compassion, curiosity, and conservation for the aquatic animal world. From sea stars to stingrays, bullfrogs to beluga whales, you'll meet creatures from aquatic habitats around the world. Nearly 2 million annual visitors can't be wrong: Shedd Aquarium is the "must-sea" destination in Chicago! Enjoy an all-access pass, with access to the Abbott Oceanarium and aquatic presentation, Wild Reef, aquarium galleries, special exhibit, Stingray Touch experience, and 4-D Experience.

 

You'll be able to see the Washed Ashore artwork located throughout the aquarium. Washed Ashore: Art to Save the Sea features massive colorful sculptures of familiar ocean animals, including reef fishes, an octopus, and a sea lion pup, made entirely of plastic marine debris removed from West Coast beaches. Join Shedd in keeping plastic out of our waters!

 

See Shedd from the perspective of our animal care staff during a 60-minute guided behind-the-scenes tour. You'll go behind the galleries to view the aquarium from a new angle, peek in on animals in their habitats, see where nutritious meals are prepared for some of our 32,000 animals and witness Shedd Aquarium at work. At the animal healthcare center, you'll see how preventive care and innovative water-quality practices keep the animals healthy. The final stop is our new microbiome laboratory.

REQUIREMENTS FOR BEHIND THE SCENES: Guests will be walking/standing for about 60 minutes and must be able to follow instructions given by volunteers who are leading the tour. Minimum age is 7. Guests ages 7-15 must be accompanied by a participating adult, age 18 or older.
