About Shedd Aquarium

The story of Shedd Aquarium begins with a humble stock boy, John G. Shedd. He worked diligently everyday until he became the president of a successful department store company. John G. Shedd felt a close connection to Chicago, the city that made him. He wanted to give a gift that all of its residents could enjoy, and so began the planning of Shedd Aquarium. Unfortunately, John G. Shedd never saw his aquarium realized. He died at 76, one year before Shedd Aquarium opened in 1930. Today, over 32 000 animals live at Shedd Aquarium. Visitors can explore exhibits in this gorgeous neoclassical building, designed by the same architects who did the Field Museum and Wrigley Building. Whether you’re a history-buff, an architecture-enthusiast, or marine biology-lover, the Shedd Aquarium is the perfect destination for your group outing.

Why charter a bus to visit Shedd Aquarium

Obviously, Shedd Aquarium is an amazing field trip destination. Charter a school bus in Chicago to transport your group of kiddos to the aquarium. Kids already know all the best bus songs and are used to the laid-back vibe of a school bus. But the Aquarium isn’t just for kids. It could be the site of a unique birthday party or corporate outing. If you’d like a little extra comfort for your group, rent a coach bus and take advantage of its extra amenities.
