Year-round employee benefits
Employees are entitled to free mini pass admission to the aquarium (includes the Waters of the World galleries, Caribbean Reef, Amazon Rising and Wild Reef) during our normal operating hours. Employees will have the option to upgrade to the following additional exhibits and experiences at the time of check-in:
- Shedd Pass — $8.95 (includes Abbott Oceanarium and Polar Play Zone)

Employees receive express entry at the will-call line during non-Corporate Family Days months. Additional tickets may be purchased at the will-call booth. The admission benefit is good for the employee only and does not include family members or guests.
During summer months, employees are also entitled to free mini pass admission to Jazzin’ at the Shedd, our summer jazz concert series. See our Jazzin’ web page for schedule and details.
Corporate Family Days
Throughout February, October and November, employees may bring up to three additional guests for free mini access admission. Employees and their guests must wait in the main ticket line to redeem their admission benefit. Read our Corporate Family Days FAQ.
