The Washington exhibit is largely devoted to a presentation of the state's many natural attractions.

A diorama presents Rainier National Park, showing the Emmons Glacier, the largest in the US.
Seattle, Tacoma, Spokane, Walla Walla, the Yakima and Wenatchee valleys are some of the subjects of murals made from enlarged colour photographs.

A relief map shows Puget Sound, in the Olympic Peninsula and Cascade Range. It is a model of the Grand Coulee Dam in the Columbia River Canyon, the first 2,000,000 horsepower unit where the government is spending $63,000,000.

A fir tree 10 metres long, 1 metre wide and 0.8 metres high is displayed in an exhibition of Washington's most important industry, timber.

Mineral samples illustrate the state's mineral wealth.
