Chicago’s beloved Shedd Aquarium is helping us get through the winter months with news that it will offer free admission for Illinois Residents for more than a third of February.
Admission costs will be dropped for Illinois residents on every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of February starting Tuesday, February 7 through to Thursday, March 2.
To avoid excessive lines and help ensure access to as many neighbors as possible by validating orders, tickets need to be secured ahead of a visit by booking online at sheddaquarium.org/plan-a-visit or over the phone by calling 312-939-2438.
Free entry will not be permitted to guests who walk up without a reservation and all adults must provide proof of residency in person when redeeming tickets at the discounted rate. This can be a valid state ID or driver’s license with proof of Illinois residence.
