  • 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
  • Its a great place to visit even though it did not meet my expectations. I was looking forward to seeing actual animals or stuffed versions of the real ones, it was nonetheless a beautiful and colorful experience
  • The scenery in this place is amazing.. it’s nice to come a walk and see amazing scientific pieces and then go up tot he cafe and enjoy a snack while looking at the oceans truly beautiful
  • It was ok. We liked the video at the beginning and the history exhibit at the bottom and the garden. I suggest visit in the morning or late afternoon. Cafe didn't have any drinks or food tailored to kids so bring snake and drinks
