Shedd Aquarium

From the day it opened in 1930, Shedd Aquarium set a new standard for aquariums around the world. It was the first inland aquarium to maintain a permanent exhibition of both freshwater and saltwater fishes. It remains the largest indoor aquarium in the world. The Shedd Aquarium promotes the enjoyment, appreciation and conservation of aquatic life and environments through education, exhibits and research. With the opening of the Oceanarium in 1991, Shedd nearly doubled in size. Its popularity and reputation attract visitors from around the world, making it one of the most visited cultural attractions in the city of Chicago.
