  • Impressive observation point to see the incredible operations of the Panama canal from the city of Colon, which oversees the very end of the the new locks that allows very heavy ships to enter into the Caribbean. The center includes a movie theater, a good restaurant and an ecological trail
  • So much to say but in short-term IT'S A marvellous engineering work.it is a history of America.
  • This place is amazing, the architecture is incredible. It is a great experience to be able to see how the new canal works and the cargoes are really impressive in size. The day we went there there's was the biggest cargo ever that has crossed the Colon lock coming from Tokyo, Japan. They will have to build another expansion soon! Looking forward to see it!
  • Great cultural place, with live comments as ship proceeds through the locks
  • Really nice. You can see how the canal operates.
