Journalists and photographers were given a tour of the “Resilience: Remembering August 3” exhibit at the El Paso Museum of History on Thursday.

The museum also hosted a private viewing for families of the victims on Friday. But due to the coronavirus pandemic, the history museum remains closed, and the public opening of the exhibit was put on hold.

The exhibit is dedicated to the 23 victims and includes items from the makeshift community memorial that formed near the Cielo Vista Walmart after the Aug. 3 mass shooting – the deadliest anti-Latino attack in modern American history.

Through Monday, Aug. 3, visitors can view a commemorative video on the digital wall outside of the El Paso Museum of History. Pictures for the digital wall can be submitted at www.digie.org.
