Track Changes

Track Changes, the 2024 exhibition in the Albert H. Nahmad Panama Canal Gallery will examine the history of the railroad in Panama. In addition to focusing on the construction of the first transcontinental railroad in the 1850s, the exhibition will address how people crossed the isthmus prior to the railroad, particularly during the Gold Rush years. Other topics include the creation and development of towns; special cars and trains; the impacts of Canal construction on the railroad; and the various ways in which employees, residents, and tourists used or interacted with the railroad for decades.

This exhibit will be on display starting April 6th in the Nahmad Gallery, on the first floor of Smathers Library (East), is open to the public during normal building hours.
