Large Object Installation Day

Photos from Installation Day. An early 20th-century segregated passenger car and a guard tower from a Louisiana State Penitentiary (Angola), were installed on NMAAHC's construction site. The rest of the museum will be built around the artifacts. #nmaahc #construction

As depicted in this rendering of the museum interior, visitors will be able to pass through Rail Car No. 1200.
