Every year millions of people take a tour up to Chicago to visit the famous Shedd Aquarium. It boasts over 25,000 fish and 5,000,000 gallons of water. With such a massive display and known history people are often out trying to find cheap ways to visit the center. Well here today we are gonna talk about how to find those Shedd Aquarium discount tickets and coupons.

If you want to save some money on your trip then there are several things to keep in mind. This exhibit is no different than most often tourist areas in that it takes money to keep the doors open to your the public. That should be kept in mind as it wouldn't be reasonable to expect cheap prices all year. However there are certain things that do apply in most situations.

If you are part of a large group then Shedd Aquarium discount tickets can perhaps be obtained directly through the main office. It is very often that exhibits of this nature will give coupons and cheap or even free tours to school or church groups as this promotes the area. Maybe as a parent or youth leader you can even set up a group visit on your own time.

Of course we have to mention the community days that are offered at the Shedd Aquarium that are even better than discount tickets or coupons. There are 52 community discount days at the museum that are pretty much free days for Illinois residents. That includes a free pass to most of the exhibit and even discounts on the others. Many of these coincide with school vacation periods so that parents can take their young ones out while they are off on break.

There is one more big way to get Shedd Aquarium discount tickets or coupons that needs to be mentioned here today as well. All you must do is have a Bank of America credit or debit card and you will receive one free pass. This is only good on the first full weekend of each month but that is better than nothing either way. Then of course police and military personel get extra discounts and lowered rates as well.

Now keep in mind that with these Shedd Aquarium discount tickets and coupons that many don't apply to certain areas of the exhibit. For example the Wild Reef and Abbott Oceanarium are areas that are considered bonus displays and usually aren't included in free admission situations. But they are offered at a lowered rate so take that into consideration as well.

I hope everybody at home is able to take advantage of this information and get out to visit the Shedd Aquarium with or without discount tickets and coupons. It has always been a dream of mine to go swimming with sharks or other large aquatic creatures. Perhaps one day that dream will come true until then best of luck to everybody out there on their trip.
