The Sequoia House
The cross-section of a giant sequoia tree
November 01 - March 31: the exhibition is closed
The Sequoia House built in 1998, resembles a crown. A cross-section of a giant sequoia tree from California is on display here, measuring a massive 6.3 m in diameter, and weighing 7.5 tons. The life of the tree may have started in 200 AD, and the tree-rings seen on the cross section now serve as markers of important dates in Hungarian history.
