The John G. Shedd Aquarium in Chicago, USA, is the world’s largest indoor Aquarium. The aquarium, named after its founder John Graves Shedd, was opened in May 1930 and is considered to be one of the oldest of its kind.
Designed in the style of a neoclassical temple in white marble and terracotta, the building has been enlarged twice since 1930: the modernist Abbott Oceanarium was added in 1991 and the Wild Reef opened in 2003.With around 32,000 animals, numerous award-winning exhibitions and a variety of exciting activities, the Shedd Aquarium offers a versatile range for the whole family. Visitors can not only admire River turtles and sea otters, but also little monkeys and tiny frogs. There is also a rare species of iguana, Penguins and dolphins in the Aquarium. In addition, the Shedd Aquarium has a variety of fish that change their color or shape, or even croak and spit to lure insects out of trees.
