Chicago with Family: Fun at Shedd Aquarium

Chicago with Family is so much fun for us. Good thing we don't need to pay any getaways for our daughter yet. Shedd Aquarium is  part of our  itinerary in Chicago as we purchased the City pass to get a good deal and accessed most of the exhibits without additional fee. 

Since we have a City Pass, we immediately went to the entrance and get in the Aquarium, and the employee who got our ticket doesn't know also and did not advised us to get our ticket so we can accessed all the exhibits that we need to go. I went back and asked to one lady about our City pass if how to get in the exhibits and surprisingly she told me we need to have a ticket...oops, so I explained to her we don't know and on the entrance he doesn't advised us to get a ticket but he just let us go and got our ticket. We went back to the entrance and told him and we waited for almost 5 minutes to resolves the issues. We're very thankful they understand us and give us some ticket since its not our fault.

During our visits in Shedd Aquarium in Chicago was too crowded, lots of students ( field trip).You know what's student looks like sigh:).The Shedd Aquarium was pretty neat and impressive aside from the students. We decided to go first in Jelly exhibits and went to the other exhibits we don't saw. We spent half day in Shedd Aquarium and saw all the exhibits.

The exhibits we went and included in our ticket:
  • Waters of The World:
  • Amazon Rising:
  • The Abbott Oceanarium:
  • Polar Play Zone:
  • 4-D Experience:
  • Shedd's Aquatic show:
  • Jellies:
Family Tips:
  • Go early or in the afternoon to avoid the students field trip.
  • City Pass is not a ticket-is only an easy way to fall in line and they will give you a ticket or wristband to allow you to get in the exhibits.
Do you have any Family tips for Shedd Aquarium you want,please let me know and I'm happy to add it.

  1. sister nakapunta ka na ba dito sa Manila Ocean's Park? just wondering if it is comparable to Shedd Aquarium?

    Parang naguluhan ako sa "City Pass"?

  2. Wow daming included sa ticket na exhibits! I'm sure nag enjoy kayo kahit medyo crowded dahil sa field trip.

  3. Glad the City Pass & ticket issue got resolved! The Shedd Aquarium is wonderful and the jelly fish are my personal favorites!

  4. It looks like the sort of place our family would love.
