Penguins Are Allowed To View Exhibits While Aquarium Is Closed To The Public

I can still remember my first trip to the aquarium when I was eight years old, where I marveled at all the fish in the enormous tanks. Aquatic animals are extremely cool and diverse, making the aquarium seem like an almost surreal place.

The Shedd Aquarium, due to concerns about social distancing, decided to shut its doors to the public on March 13, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t allowing some new visitors to have a look around.
