Not worth the ticket price. - user review
The two things I liked about the aquarium were the dolphin show and the monkey in one of the exibits. We paid $23 a ticket, based on what I saw, the ticket prices should be more l...

Acclaimed as the world's largest indoor aquarium, the Shedd has over 8000 animals and over 650 different species. It has received numerous boosts over the last few years thanks to the ultra-popular Oceanarium and new exhibits centered on the Amazon, seahorses and sharks. Kids and adults alike enjoy ...

Shedd Aquarium - user review
The world's largest assortment of finned, grilled, amphibious and other aquatic creatures swim within the marble-clad confines of the John G Shedd Aquarium. Most of the 8000 species represented are in fairly small tank that pale in comparison to the flashy, shark-infested aquariums in other cites. H...

Field Museum - user review
This is not the largest museum in the world by any means, and its focus is very definitely on natural history and archaeology. You won't see any art exhibits here, for example. Unlike, say, the Louvre in Paris, it's a museum that you can explore quite well in a couple of hours - you would not spend ...

Shedd Aquarium - user review
( * 1/2 discounts on Mon. and Tues., September through February.) I think that the renovations done to this museum (that continue, by the way!) over the last 10 years are mind boggling ! The curved ceiling to floor glass wall behind the Baluga Whale tank is a visual delight that makes you ( and I am...

Trip with kids - user review
