What's the best time to arrive at Shedd?

Arrive early (we open at 9 a.m.). Shedd is a popular place and can get crowded, especially on weekends, in the summer and on holidays. Believe it or not, Bears home game days can be a great time to visit if you take public transportation to Shedd. And if you’re attending the game, visit Shedd first!
