Illinoisans will be able to visit Chicago’s Shedd Aquarium for free starting next week. The offer is good from Monday, February 22nd through Friday the 26th. Free visits will look a bit different with strict COVID-19 safety measures in place. Guest are required to provide a valid state ID to gain entrance at no charge. Tickets must be obtained ahead of the visit. Even though the tickets are free a three-dollar transaction fee will be applied to tickets reserved online.
