Shedd Aquarium, like many public places, was forced to close up shop while Chicago was gripped by an intense arctic blast Jan. 6 and 7.
But they're bummed potential visitors had to miss out on the marine life—and they'll make it up to you. Illinois residents can enjoy free admission Saturday, Jan. 11 and Sunday, Jan. 12, as announced on Shedd's Facebook page. The aquarium reopens Jan. 8 at 9 a.m.
