A small sequoia wood is the centre of the California exhibition. The entrance is in the form of a tunnel in a 4-metre high redwood trunk.

Between the redwood trunks of the palm grove are murals of California history and dioramas of summer and winter sports.

Through a hole in another of the redwood trunks you go into the Spanish courtyard where the 10 metre high windows of one of the buildings reveal a diorama of Los Angeles.

A stunning display of fruit is in the foreground.

A little further on is another great San Francisco diorama, showing the Golden Gate and Oakland bridges.

The redwood and pine associations have rooms showing the uses of their woods. In every available space is a diorama or display of fruit products.
