    Have you seen the Jellies yet?!? GO NOW! It ends in 2015!!I am not one who goes out of the way to see aquatic species, but the Jellies exhibit is a mind-blowing experience. There’s always a line to get in the Shedd, and there will likely be a like for the Jellies, but go with a friend and you chat the time away. You do NOT want to miss this exhibit just because it meant waiting a total of 30-45 minutes.The exhibit is well executed, in a small, intimate area with a lower ceiling (average height, as it were) that sets the tone for awe and wonder that the jellyfish instill. The colored light in each tank contrasts perfectly with the jellyfish inside, bring to mind colors you might see in an Andy Warhol exhibit. There is such a variety in size – some that are teeny-tiny, others that are just small, and there is a sculpture hanging from the ceiling to show just how huge jellyfish can be! Don’t let the price scare you off – it’s definitely worth it, and the Shedd offers discount days. Take advantage!

    Came here a couple of times as a kid, but recently attended one of their late night exhibitions, where adults come and have fun. The experience was of course much more enjoyable without tons of tourists ogling every square inch of the place. But, even if you can’t come late at night, don’t miss it! It’s one of the best aquariums in the nation for a reason, you’ll definitely feel that you got your money’s worth.

    I typically come here once a year during the summer when they have their Jazzin’ at the Shedd events which occurs on Wednesdays. Not all the exhibits are included but it’s not overly crowded so you can get a great experience and take your time visiting the tanks. Plus, live jazz music + being able to explore the Shedd with a beverage in hand is kinda cool. Also, huge plus that you get a nice view of the fireworks at Navy Pier. I recommend bringing a blanket so you can lay down on the grass and just enjoy the fireworks and the breathtaking view of the city.

    You can’t come to Chicago and not come here. Even as an adult, I can never miss the chance to see the wonder. I love this place. ♡

    Had a great time at the Shedd! Went on one of the Illinois Resident Days but definitely had to upgrade and pay for a ticket to see the good stuff. The aquatic show was great! Absolutley loved the sea lion, he stole the show! I also really like the Polar Play Zone, which may be for kids but it was a great under water viewing of my favorite animals and I touched a star fish. The sting ray exhibit was really cool. I really enjoyed touching them, so cool! We also saw the 4-D sea monsters movie which was fun. The rest of the exhibits were nice but not extraordinary.
