Museum of African American History Being Built Around Railway Car, Prison Tower

Crews will install two objects at the National Museum of African American History and Culture on Sunday.

The museum said the Southern Railway Car and Angola Prison Tower are too big to install when the museum is finished. So both objects are being placed now and the construction will continue around them.

The museum is on the National Mall near the Washington Monument. The objects will be part of the segregation permanent exhibit.

The museum is expected to open in 2015.
