Corporate Member Benefits

Shedd’s new ticket structure provides access to all exhibits, including Wild Reef, Abbott Oceanarium, Polar Play Zone, Amazon Rising, Stingray Touch and special exhibits. The aquatic presentation will be available to all guests on a first-come, first served basis. Guests may upgrade to the 4-D Experience for an additional $2.95 per person. Corporate members also receive free admission to Jazzin' at the Shedd, our summer jazz concert series.

As a reminder:

  • Pick up your complimentary ticket at the will-call counter.
