Located on the 1st floor of the Port Exploreum, the Lake Michigan Table instantly catches visitors eyes as various aspects of today's weather are displayed.  See which way the wind is moving across the lake, where there is cloud cover, the air temperature around the lake, and how high the waves are on any part of Lake Michigan.  During the winter discover where the Lake has frozen over.  Touch the table and you immediately can learn what freighters are where around the lake (you can also see the SS Badger and the Lake Express Ferry)!  Then delve into information about certain areas around the lake, including lake depths, shipwrecks, conditions of the area, and points of interest.  We use a mix of written word, pictures and videos to help you discover why Lake Michigan is the marvel that it has become.
