COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (WOWT) - The Union Pacific Railroad Museum has announced the offering of two unique pop-up exhibits on their north lawn that will be available for public viewing on Saturday, Sept. 25, from 1 to 4 p.m.

The two pop-up exhibits will be in conjunction with Centro Latino of Iowa’s Latino Festival, which will be taking place the same day in Bayliss Park. Both exhibits are part of the museum’s traveling exhibit program that serves smaller museums and libraries that are not eligible for traveling cultural content.

Featuring the history of National Parks and the railroad, the two exhibits on display will be All Set for the West and Hidden Histories of the Transcontinental Railroad.
