The Shedd Aquarium lies on the shores of Lake Michigan, a gateway to an underwater world unlike anything you've ever experienced. Come eye-to-eye with a piranha (safely!), get moony over the moon jellies and meet the newest family member, a baby beluga named Naya. This watery world includes 32,500 marine animals and 80 different habitats — plus a polar play zone for kids.
Nine exhibits and multiple theaters invite you to take the helm in your own space adventure. Whether you have a budding astronaut or just find yourself fascinated by the night sky, a trip to The Adler must be on your list.
