Spend the Night at the Shedd Aquarium

Spend a night with the creatures of the deep and the shallow with a night at the Shedd Aquarium. This unique experience gives you and your kids some quality time at one of Chicago’s most popular attractions.

Overnights at the Shedd are geared towards children between the ages of 5 and 12, and each kid must be accompanied by a bigger kid – a.k.a. an adult. A typical itinerary includes an aquatic show, activites in the aquarium galleries, dive presentations, and a light night snack. Early the next morning you’ll get to explore the galleries some more, have some breakfast, and then tour the Oceanarium and Wild Reef.

Upcoming overnights are on Jan. 30, Feb. 6, Feb. 20, March 6 and March 20. Tickets are $75, ($60 for members) but if you register with Goldstar you can get tickets for $45 for the January 30th event. You can also get a VIP ticket for $90, which gets you VIP seating at the show and other perqs. These events sell out quickly, so you’ll want to get your tickets fast.

Shedd Aquarium is located in the Museum Campus at 1200 S Lake Shore Dr, Chicago. 312-939-2438
