July 15, 2010 – August 9, 2011

This hands-on, interactive exhibit explores the complexities of water in California. Visitors will discover the world’s largest manmade water system and the people behind its creation, and be challenged to actively consider the choices facing policy makers today. A big-screen flyover will take them from the nation’s tallest dam to its longest aqueduct, while artifacts and interviews reveal how the  California Water Project – celebrating its 50th birthday in 2010 – changed the way we live in the Golden State.
