The new United States National Museum, now known as the National Museum of Natural History, opened on March 17, 1910 housing the Smithsonian Institution's natural history, art, culture, and history collections. A worker is standing near the cart holding up a smaller sign that reads "The CEO W Knox Express Company, Heavy Hauling Erecting."
