About John G. Shedd Aquarium

One of the largest indoor aquariums in the world, John G. Shedd Aquarium in Chicago overlooks Lake Michigan in the Museum Complex, sharing space with major attractions such as the Adler Planetarium, the Field Museum of Natural History and Soldier Field, home of the NFL Chicago Bears. In addition to interactive exhibits, shows and tours, the aquarium engages in animal research and care, including wide-ranging projects such studying important fisheries, understanding microbial communities and documenting the collapse of historic fish aggregation.

More than 8000 aquatic animals make their home at Shedd Aquarium, from alligator snapping turtles to blue iguanas and anacondas, with exhibits that recreate teeming jungles, wild reefs and the mighty Amazon River. A 4D theatre shows ever-changing films about sea monsters, coastal predators, Ice Age amphibians and more. Behind-the-scenes tours give visitors the chance to encounter and care for Beluga whale and penguins or join an overnight party at the aquarium.

The Museum Complex is on Lake Shore Drive, just a few minutes’ walk from CTA and Metra stations, with a direct route from Union Station. Drivers can find parking at large parking structures throughout the Museum Complex, and there is a guest drop-off area on the south side of the aquarium, off Solidarity Drive. Several Divvy bike-sharing stations are near the aquarium, including one at Roosevelt Station.

Named after Marshall Field retail president John G. Shedd, the aquarium fulfilled his dream of building a world-class facility, designed in the Beaux Arts style of Greek architecture. It reflects features of a neoclassical temple, formed with white marble and earthy terracotta, with marine fossils in its limestone floor. The extraordinary glass dome holds a rendition of Neptune’s trident.
