  • Excellent and important museum telling the geological, natural, and human history of Panama, highlighting its significance as the land bridge that connected the Americas and separated the oceans. Great explanations, interactive exhibits and videos. There is also a strong ecological message conveyed through the various galleries.
  • It is really interesting museum!!! You will learn so much about Panama Biodiversity, ancient animals. You will stroll along nice parks and listen to the beautiful tropical birds! I really recommend to spend time in this museum
