This is the first time in generations that the entire Panorama will be seen by the public. Set amidst an historic textile mill in New Bedford, visitors will be able to travel around the world and back in time without ever leaving the city. The exhibition will also feature interpretive panels and kiosks to enrich the context and content of the Panorama. This once-in-a-lifetime experience will be free and open to the public, open during normal Museum hours through Columbus Day.
