"A part of the Waters of the World original galleries, At Home on the Great Lakes highlights some of our region's most notable — and notorious — animals. Through this exhibit, we hope to inspire you to make a difference in the health of the Great Lakes ecosystem we all share. Encounter some of the Great Lakes’ signature animals, touch a swimming sturgeon and come face to face with some of our region’s most challenging invaders." This aquarium also offers an educational display featuring the invasive Sea Lamprey.
