  • No the place to go avoid that not much to see - boring place -go other places-colorful place to see  more »
  • Indoor attractions, leave a little to be desired. The outside of the biomuseu is very interesting. Located at the entrance of the Panama canal, has a beautiful garden. the architecture of the Museum is very beautiful.

  • We arrived via cruise ship and looked forward to visiting, however, when our taxi driver dropped us off it was closed. Very disappointed as there is NOTHING else around it to see.  more »

  • It is a wonderful place, where you can learn about biodiversity and history. The people who work there are amazingly kind and prepared. Is one of my favorite places in Panama
  • 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 string ecological message conveyed through the various galleries.
  • Perfect with kids! Not very big, but very interesting. Interactive explanations for eac geological era. How Panama arose from an ocean, how it changed all environment. Oceans, weather, plants, animals, etc. Impressive live-sized statues of prehistoric animals and much more. Several "open galleries" about local cultures through the time. Small park surrounding the museum with educative path.
  • Amazing museum about biodiversity. It's quite small, though. The design of the building itself is what calls the most attention.
  • This museum focuses on how Panama was created millions of years ago. Animals from north America and south America were connected. It brings to light how these animals had to thrive together for the first time ever. Very interesting and the building has a beautiful exterior. Outside there are beautiful trees you can take a walk sit and relax or take pictures. Very nice museum.
