The Panama Canal Museum
The Panama Canal Museum in Seminole, FL, closed on July 31, 2012.
The Panama Canal Museum has transferred its collection to the George A. Smather’s Libraries at the University of Florida, in Gainseville, FL, ensuring its mission to preserve the history of the United States in Panama will live long into the future.
The Panama Canal Museum in Seminole, Florida, the only museum in the world founded solely to preserve the history of the American Era of the Panama Canal (1904-1999), recognizes the contributions of the whole world in making this 20th century engineering marvel, the moon shot of its day, available to individuals, companies, and nations across the globe. Focusing on the construction, operation, maintenance, and defense of the canal during its formative years, the museum shows how these efforts helped make Panama’s unique geography and location truly a crossroads of the world.
