The Esquire IMAX movie experience, Adventures in Wild California, uses stunning cinematography to provide dramatic views of California’s natural beauty and introduces viewers to some of the people who have made California such a great state. The heart-pounding imagery takes you to California's furthest edges. “Wild California” is a virtual expedition that sends audiences careening down an icy mountain face with snowboarders, swimming through the oceans with otters, and excavating the very heart of a thirty-story tall Giant Sequoia with botanists. Learn more about the movie, Adventures in Wild California.
The State Capitol and surrounding park is truly a living museum and a beautiful setting to marvel at the history of our state’s government. The capitol building serves as both a museum and the state’s working seat of government. Visitors to the Capitol can at once experience California’s rich history and witness the making of history through the modern lawmaking process. It is home to an extensive collection of important historical California artifacts, artwork, and antique furnishings. Learn more about the Capitol building and exhibits.
