A jewel in the museum crown (that also includes Adler Planetarium and The Field Museum) on Lake Shore Drive, Shedd Aquarium is among the largest indoor aquariums in the world. With fascinating exhibits like Wild Reef and Amazon Rising to add to its almost endless maze of marine life, your young Jacques Cousteau will learn a lot at Shedd. Highly recommended is splurging a little and attending the fascinating dolphin show. Not only will you be entertained, but the facilites are breathtaking, with a view of Lake Michigan in the background.
