The new exhibit hall Highlights of Latin American Archaeology, opens with a special ceremony in recognition of Pan-American Day. The hall (Hall 23), located in what is now called the National Museum of Natural History, is the first permanent exhibit hall to be completely renovated since the building was opened to the public in 1910. The renovation began in 1951 and "presents man's cultural development from his earliest known beginnings in Latin America to the high civilizations of the Inca, Aztec, and Maya."
