  • The Biomuseo is small. They are still in the process of expansion. But it is a must see if visiting Panama City. Despite its size the museum is incredible informative on the natural history of Panama. You really leave with a greater appreciation of Panama's unique role in global climate and the incredible importance to the countries lush and diverse flora and fauna. The Frank Gehry designed building is a beautiful example of post modern architecture and the views of the city from the museum are terrific.
  • Loved this museum. So much to learn about the country. Gift shop had the best panamanian souvenirs. Literally..
  • Great biodiversity museum. Interesting video exhibits. Easy self guided tours.
  • I really enjoyed this museum. Much is happening as far as remodeling and renovation but the plans look extremely promising. The guides were young, enthusiastic, friendly and knowledgeable. The audio tour was informative and interesting. I liked learning about the history and meaning of the building itself, a Frank Gehry original, is impressive to behold. My absolute favorite part was the theatre room. We walked into a dark room covered with massive projection screens on three sides and were instructed to sit on the floor. Once the projections began, it was impossible to keep your jaw shut. The experience was all encompassing down to the floor which was glass and contained another screen below. IT WAS SO COOL!! All and all, it deserves another visit once the expansion is finished. I look forward to returning in 2019!
  • Colourful architecture that allows an easy flow of people inside. The young staff is helpful and knowledge. There is still quiere a bit to be built but what is there is very informative. Price for tourists is a little steep for what it offers, but I am only here once so happy to pay it. Cafe is very small and poorly supplied so I'd advise you bring your own goodies and eat them under the gigantic rubber tree.
