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 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. There are two option tickets that give you access to either the 360 CHICAGO Observation Deck or the Museum of Science and Industry, and the Adler Planetarium or the Art Institute of Chicago. Note: You do not need to choose between these options at the time of booking.
