Shedd Aquarium offers week of free admission


CHICAGO (AP) -- Chicago's Shedd Aquarium says it's timing a week of free admission with the start of Chicago Public School students' summer vacations.

The Aquarium is offering free admission to its original galleries from Sunday through Friday.

Visitors will see a newly renovated facility that reopened a few weeks ago after nine months of work. New exhibits include the Polar Play Zone and the Grainger Beluga Encounter Habitat.

Pacific white-sided dolphins and other animals that were sent to locations around the country during the $50 million renovation will also be on view.

The 170,000-square-foot Oceanarium was opened in April 1991.
