"The Shedd Aquarium is..." Shedd Aquarium Tip by mjm716

Shedd Aquarium, Chicago: 57 reviews and 112 photos


The Shedd Aquarium is definitely worth the trip. I've seen aquariums around the world and what is most unique about the Shedd is it's amazing architecture. Art deco decor and finishing details on a building created especially for it's function. Beautiful!

btw...not to discount Shedd, but the best overall aquarium (in the World) has got to be the Monterey Bay Aquarium in Monterey, California.
