Other Moving Panoramas

A Panorama of a Whaling Voyage Round the World, 1848, New Bedford Whaling Museum. New Bedford, Massachusetts.

Although hundreds, perhaps thousands, of moving panoramas were made and performed during their heyday in 19th-century America, very few are known to exist to this day. Some of the best preserved and best documented moving panoramas can be found in American public collections. Below are some links to online resources.
