About Shedd Aquarium in Chicago

Sharing the Museum Campus of Chicago with Field Museum and Adler Planetarium, Shedd Aquarium is one of Chicago’s most visited attractions. Built in 1930, it was back then, the very first inland aquarium that also houses a permanent saltwater fish collection. The 5 million US gallons of water in the Shedd Aquarium of Chicago houses more than 32,000 water and land creatures, divided into 1500 species.

History of Shedd Aquarium

The origin of Shedd Aquarium Musuem is a humble one. The museum was initially called John G. Shedd Aquarium after John G. Shedd, who gifted the land and also happens to be the protégé of the benefactor of the Field Museum, Marshall Field. For a little while, it was the largest indoor aquarium of the world. Shedd’s wife Mary cut the ribbon at the opening ceremony on May 30, 1930. The iconic venue was designated the title of a National Historic Landmark in 1987.

Attractions of Shedd Aquarium

Shedd Aquarium animals include any and all marine creatures that you can think of. There are stingrays, belugas, penguins, jellyfish, sea lions, sea otters, octopuses, whales, sharks, turtles and many more. The Shedd Aquarium dolphins at the Oceanarium are the friendliest creatures you will ever meet. Among the famous galleries of the aquarium are Waters of the World, which is also the oldest exhibit here, Caribbean Reef which replaced the first-ever exhibit Tropical Pool, Amazon Rising – a recreation of the Amazon River and its rainforest and the Wild Reef, which has the museum’s largest collection of marine life, including a really dangerous looking shark tank. For those who want a little bit more academic insight can attend the 4D Theatre. Inside the theatre, Shedd Aquarium shows movies that children and adults can both enjoy, with interactive seating like scent and bubbles. 3D movies on wildlife like Ice Age, Sea Monsters, Planet Earth, and Polar Express and Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer during Christmas are played taking turns.

    • Trip to USA

      This is my first foreign travel booked through travel triangle. I had some doubts initially on booking my Los Angeles vacation from TT however post my first discussion with Piyush from Trip Magus I have made up my mind to go with Trip Magus. Would recommend Trip Magus for foreign travel/vacation. Their consultant has knowledge of policies and procedures of foreign travel and rules. So u can rely on them completely. Best part of booking through Trip Magus is dat u can customize your tour as per your requirement. They try to accommodate your request and are quite flexible. I think most of popular tour operators lack flexibility and you have to draw up ur plan as per their fixed standard schedule.

      I bought this trip from Centaur Vacations. They provided me the best itinerary which is very wholesome and comfortable in which we are able to cover each and everything in a nice manner. Ms Kusum and her colleague Rishabh were very supportive. It was a long honeymoon trip of 17 days in which they were available for 24X7 for help whenever I messaged them they replied promptly and assisted me on every topic.Everything was according to the itinerary and on time.

He helped us put together a great trip and considered every request.. from budget to activities and hotels of our choice, he did great to put it all together...even on the trip, he checked with us every day to make sure our experience was per expectations... I highly highly recommend King Forest for their amazing customer service... Also want to call out Sharad who was our driver for the trip, he was a great combo driver/guide, very calm and friendly helping us with great suggestions throughout the trip....

      Trip was well organized, cab service was far better than expected. Only the experience at tent was not very good but it was fairly expected. Courtesy extended bt staff of hotel, tent and taxi driver was excellent. Recommend to use Sareer travel again. Nubra Valley, pangong lake was amazing and best part was car travel from nura to pangong. Reminded me of grand canyon in USA. Scenic beauty is amazing.

      Many thanks for your query. Pleased to mail you the package details as per your requirement Sunil at Holiday Travels did. a great job with follow up, coordination with Dubai to make our travel experience enjoyable and comfortable. Hotel was great. Dinner cruise was average. Recommend more punctuality in picking up at the hotel by the secondaries used by Dubai based travel agencies. However, Sunil at Holiday Travel and its commitment is praise worthy and we will use his services for vacation planning from USA or from India. Surinder Maheshwary, USA
