Twelve years after opening, the Panama Canal Museum (PCM) in Seminole, Florida made the decision to transfer their collections to the George A. Smathers Libraries at the University of Florida. The Libraries will preserve and archive the portion of Canal Zone history that encompasses the time of the United States presence in Panama. Uniquely qualified to offer access to these collections, the Libraries have one of the largest and most respected Latin American repositories in the nation.To learn more about how you can assist the Libraries and the PCM preserve its legacy, click here.
