Great Lakes Future

It’s time to explore your neighborhood.

Around 30 million people make their home around the Great Lakes. Chances are you’re one of them.

Explore one of the largest interactive models of the Great Lakes in the world! Investigate the geology and geography of some of the fish, turtles, snakes, and other creatures that make their homes in the Great Lakes Basin. Create weather! Make it rain and create fog. And get a stunning view of the entire exhibit from the Sky Bridge.  Welcome to the neighborhood!
