    Shedd Aquarium security

    Iíve been informed that I am taking the family to Shedd Aquarium and the Museum of Science and Industry soonly. Iíve seen there is no real security at MSI, but canít find anything on Shedd. I will carry everywhere Iím not wanted/scanned, rules be damned, but need a heads up if any one knows. Will be staying one night at Mag Mile Marriott, so dinner at Lawrys The Prome Rib, and a.m. contemplating shopping Water Tower, but after the wilding weekend, ? Next night going to cheaper Marriott in Oakbrook, and commute downtown for Navy Pier also need security heads up for there? Any intel for downtown security at attractions would be appreciated. Havenít been in two years, so need to know whatís changed.

    I used to work at the Shedd and there was never any type of wand/scan at the entrances. It's been a few years since I have been there but am not aware that that has changed. If I can get any info, I'll be sure to share it here. Trying to think of who I know that is still working there that I would feel comfortable asking that question.

    A friend of mine is the head of security at the Field Museum, right next door to Shedd. I will text him and see if he knows anything about Shedd.

    Just got an answer from my buddy at Field Museum. He said that Shedd has wands, but Field Museum has no wands or metal detectors.

    Thanks for the info, looks like the stroller will be a little heavier.

    Good to know...I was just getting ready to contact someone at the Shedd after figuring out who might be okay with answering that question for me.

    Would they not wand the stroller too?

    I've been, but its been almost 6 years ago. Personal opinion. Newport in Ky blows it out of the water and I'd almost pick another museum instead of the aquarium.

    Carry in Chicago without a permit, on public parks, living out of state......

    I would disagree with this. Shedd is better than Newport.
