The free admission to the Shedd Aquarium runs though this week. It applies only to the entrance fee at the aquarium. There is a reduced fee to see the Oceanarium and Wild Reef.

The Chicago History Museum is also open. Visitors can take pictures with past presidents, including Franklin Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln throughout the day. There are several musical performances and reenactments.
