Chicago CityPass Card
The Chicago CityPass features exclusive entry into some of the best Chicago museums Downtown, including the famous Chicago Field Museum and the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago. Other popular Chicago museumentries offered with the Chicago Discounts CityPass Card include the Adler Planetarium and the Art Institute of Chicago.
Also, the Chicago CityPass gives tourists the choice of visiting either the John Hancock Observatory (a $22 value) or the Museum of Science and Industry (a $15 value). However, we recommend visiting the Willis Tower Skydeck - which is also included in the Chicago CityPass - and taking advantage of the highly interesting Science and Industry Museum in Chicago.
Perhaps the best thing about CityPass Chicago is that it remains valid for 9 days, which covers the length of most vacations in Chicago. And while it doesn't offer as many freebies as the Go Chicago Card, the one time fee of $69 for 9 days is equal to just one day with the Go Chicago Card, making it a more affordable option for Chicago budget travelers. Also, the CityPass Chicago is particularly valuable if you're traveling as a couple - if you visit all inclusive Chicago attractions with CityPass, you'll save up to $131 (or 49%).
Lastly, the CityPass Chicago allows you to skip the lines at your favorite Chicago attractions - including the always crowded Willis Tower Skydeck and the John Hancock Observatory. Plus, you don't have to cram all of the best Chicago attractions into one day - sight-see at your own pace with the super-convenient Chicago CityPass.
