Normally I don't really like visiting museums but this is very interesting, very educational and interactive. It tells the whole history of the Panama Canal but also of the city and the country. It has a globe that demonstrates well the formation of continents. Very interesting!!!
An amazing museum! They have high tech - multi-language tour headsets available for purchase. Each exhibit has a small button that you aim your device at and click to hear information about that section of history. Super cool exhibits that are 3D and realistic with actual artifacts and documents from hundreds of years of canal and Panamanian history. Allow at least 2 hours for this three story museum. Elevators and a top floor art display are added bonuses to this modern and delightful treasure.
If your interested in the history of Panama and the canal this is a good place to visit for a couple hours. We'll maintained and up to date descriptions. Mostly also in English. Photo exhibit of the people of Panama (I assume temporarily) on the top floor was really nice!
