Shedd Aquarium houses hundreds of aquatic wonders including beluga whales, sharks, jellies and white-sided dolphins. The aquarium opened in 1930 and was built with funds donated by John Graves Shed. The aquarium is designated a national landmark and boasts many architectural features including the Georgia marble clad exterior and rare Tiffany fixtures.
The Shedd Aquarium is one of the oldest and most respected aquariums in North America. The aquarium is home to over 20,000 specimens of some 1,500 species of both freshwater and marine fish.
Shedd Aquarium was home to Grandad – an Australian lungfish who arrived at Shedd in 1933. At Granddad's death in 2017, he was claimed by the aquarium to be the oldest fish in any aquarium in the world - he was at least 86 and possibly older.
