  • The city is not pretty, but beyond the free zone have the wonder of the Panama canal. Is interesting and deserves to be visited. If you have time go in Gatun and Miraflores in Panama City.

  • It's $15 to enter but you will get great views and information on the canal and the ships passing through. If I'm honest I would rather go to Miraflores Locks. The museum and up close views of the ships makes it more interesting than this place.
  • Amazing, my friend who came from Mexico loved it, It was just grate! Viva Panama
  • We were disappointed to see that the cost was the same as the Miraflores Visitor Center but there was much less available here when it came to providing history, etc. We were hoping for more and different information since these are the new locks vs the original locks, but the information was at Miraflores.
  • Super cool to see the huge ships transit the locks!
  • Excellent engineering for control of the nivel of sea....
