Since 1980, Panama's Afroantillean Museum offered the possibility of learning about one of the most important facets of the construction of the Canal. The Museum has an exhibition hall that shows photographs of the arrival of the West Indian immigrants to Panama and their participation in the construction of the Trans-isthmian Railway and the Inter-oceanic Canal. Guided tours are offered in this hall and during the month of August, the museum organizes conferences and exhibitions elusive to the construction of the Canal.
