Shedd Aquarium

FROM THE Arts and Enrichment

Shedd's seasonal Stingray Touch invites guests to discover the unique texture and movement of their rays. Guests can also discover the dolphins and whales in the Oceanarium and get a view from below after watching the aquatic show. In the Polar Play Zone, kids can get a diver's eye view of all kinds of sea creatures, including otters, dolphins and beluga whales, plus they can touch a live sea star. Sharks swim around visitors and stingrays swim below their feet in Wild Reef. For an extra fee, take a behind-the-scenes tour or join an overnight at the aquarium.
