CA Legacy Trails


Conceived by former First Lady Maria Shriver, the Museum’s Legacy Trails bring inspiring, uniquely California stories to life online. Visitors can journey across the state while exploring its history and legacy of innovation on topics ranging from the birthplace of the progressive movement and the origins of the world’s finest grapes, to the birthplace of Hollywood legends and the Silicon Valley roots of the information technology revolution.

The Remarkable Women Trail guides visitors through the lives of California women whose stories are as diverse and awe-inspiring as the Golden State’s landscape. Users discover how 15 California icons, such as Concepcion Arguello, Amy Tan, Ray Eames and Dolores Huerta, triumphed over adversity, forged new creative frontiers and overcame obstacles like slavery, poverty and discrimination to break gender barriers and become legends.
