First on my list was to bounce over to the Museum Campus and visit the Shedd Aquarium, which is next door to the Fields Museum, Adler Planetarium and Soldier Field. The Shedd Aquarium building itself is a neoclassical architectural marvel that opened to the public in 1930 and is still eye-popping today. Amazingly, rail cars brought saltwater from Key West to the Aquarium in 1930 to establish a permanent marine exhibit, which was the first of its kind well inland.
