Shedd Aquarium Pacific Northwest Exhibit

  • shedd aquarium pacific northwest exhibit
  • Originally built in 1991, the Oceanarium underwent its first major overhaul in 2008. This exhibit leads guests on a journey through the northwest woods near a rushing river, to discover amazing animals and their habitats. Through use of materials such as glass and aluminum, the graphics are able to integrate gracefully into the “natural” surroundings.
  • Large scale panels throughout the exhibit identify the species, and deliver information that helps guests draw connections between animals, habitats and themselves.
  • Soaring way above the crowd, these 10-foot tall iconographic canvass banners represent the Pacific Northwest inhabitants. From left to right: pacific white-sided dolphins, river habitat, tide pool habitat, otters, sea lions, and belugas.
