Starting this week, Monday February 22 and going through Friday February 26, the aquarium will host Illinois Resident Free Days from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.
Because of pandemic restrictions, everyone must make reservations online through the Shedd Aquarium website or by calling 312-939-2438. There will be a $3.00 transaction fee applied for people who go online. According to the Shedd “additional onsite protocols meant to create a fun and safe environment for guests include timed tickets to entry, mask requirements, hand sanitizer stations, one-directional pathways and more.”
Adults getting tickets must provide proof of residency. Free admission won’t be given to people who don’t have a reservation.
Humans hold hands, seahorses hold tails. 💕 They even do greeting rituals before going about their days.
