Panama Canal exhibit at the Flagler Museum

In commemoration of the centennial of its opening in 1914, Kiss of the Oceans will tell the fascinating story of the construction of the Panama Canal, one of the world's great technological achievements. Through artifacts, photographs, documents, and films, the exhibition will illustrate the Canal's story from sixteenth-century explorers to nineteenth-century debates, the failed French canal project of the 1880s, the massive American takeover in 1904, and finally the first official transit on August 15, 1914.

The show is on view at the Flagler Museum from Oct. 14 through Jan. 4.
