Free public reception celebrating the opening of the Working on the Railroad exhibition.
Working on the Railroad pays tribute to the people who moved the rail industry throughout New Mexico.
Using nearly forty images from the Palace of the Governors Photo Archives and the Library of Congress, this exhibition offers an in-depth look at the men and women who did everything from laying track to dispatching the engines. Wrenches, lanterns, tie dating nails and other objects from the New Mexico History Museum collections will be displayed to give additional life to the photos; many hands used those tools to ensure that each engine ran smoothly and successfully.
Refreshments available in the main lobby 5-6pm.
