Full description

Take in incredible views, fascinating science, world-class art, and more with Chicago CityPASS® tickets that include premium admission to Chicago’s top attractions and save travelers 50% off the price of the same tickets purchased separately. The CityPASS system is simple. Simply present your mobile (or printed) ticket to be scanned at any 2 of the 5 attractions for entry. What exactly can you experience with the CityPASS ticket? One-stop is the Shedd Aquarium, where you can see otters, lizards, whales, and dolphins – and much, much more. Shedd Aquarium is home to more than 32,000 animals, housed under one octagonal dome. You can also take in breathtaking views at Skydeck, which stands 1,353 feet above the city. The Field Museum is on the list too, home of “Sue” the world’s largest T. Rex. This pass includes prepaid admission to 5 must-see attractions:

1. Shedd Aquarium

From angelfish to zebra sharks, meet 32,000 animals from aquatic habitats around the world at Chicago’s “must-sea” destination! See penguins fly through chilly waters, dolphins leap high in the air, monkeys scamper through rainforest trees, and stingrays swim below your feet. 

You’ll have all-access priority admission including permanent exhibits, animal presentations, special exhibit, and Stingray Touch (seasonal), plus a 4-D Experience.

2. Field Museum

See the world’s wonders! Visit an ancient Egyptian tomb with 23 mummies, explore over 10,000 years of Chinese history and culture, and “Sue” the world’s largest T. Rex dinosaur.

Really true amazing sights

I use all the tickets for museums all really good and I buy the handcock separatly so I can enjoy the cocktail at the top :). The tickets to be shared by two attractions is not well but it is a way to have a pass cheaper, think that yoiu have to purchase separatly the other attractions.

The information is lousy, I lost my money. As the information is not clear, I paid the entrance to the Art Institute of Chicago again and when I realized that it was not necessary because it was included, they did not refund my money. In other words, not only did I pay more in the application for the entrance ticket to the Art Institute of Chicago, but I also lost the money. Terrible option. I would not recommend this card to any tourist, unless they want to lose money in a big way.
