One of the best museums in Panama City. It’s wholesome, super well organized and interesting. The history it shows goes back several decades before the canal started being built to show how different migratory flows allowed for its creation and subsequent opening to the world. Definitely one of the best places you want to see while in Panama City besides the Panama Canal.
Definitely worth a visit. Awesome to see one of the most important canals in the world at work. Also very nice museum for some interesting background information. I highly advise to wait for a ship to come through the tight opening. Something you don’t see everyday!
