The Shedd Aquarium has several days coming up in January & February where you won’t have to pay admission!

The very popular Illinois Resident Free Days are back in 2023, and here are the times you can take advantage:

January 12, 13, 14, 15, 16

February 7, 8, 9, 14, 15, 16, 21, 22, 23, 28

You have to reserve your tickets ahead of time through the Shedd’s website — and there will be a $3 transaction fee for online tickets. (Which, is technically NOT free but significantly cheaper than standard admission)
