East of the mountain ranges of California are the Mojave and Sonoran deserts. The latter extends far into Mexico.

Both the Mojave and Sonoran desert have very rich floras. The landscape displayed in the Californian room contains many of the characteristic species such as saguaro, agaves, jojoba, and mother-in-law's cushion.
