This museum celebrates and showcases all things California; history, culture, climate, and of course, art. If your visit to the state doesn't include a scenic drive down south, then be sure to take note of the Walk Across California exhibit. Here, you'll be able to see the different ecosystems that thrive in the beautiful and diverse state. Other permanent exhibits include California: A Place, A People, A Dream, where you can learn how the state, its people, its politics, and its culture came to be. The Oakland Museum of California was designed by architect, Kevin Roche, in 1969. Roche wanted to mesh gallery space with outdoor terraces and landscaping and parks with works of art. Today, Roche's design of the museum continues to catch the attention of design teams and architects all over the world.
