National Historic Landmark

Statement of Significance (as of designation - February 27, 1987):
Opened to the public in 1930, this was the first inland aquarium in the country to maintain a permanent collection of both fresh-water and salt-water fishes and other aquatic life. Made possible by the donations of John G. Shedd (1850-1926), it is one of the prime remaining structures from the second Chicago exposition, "A Century of Progress" (1934).
