  • Visited shortly after they opened the museum. It has a long way to go to be filled, but there is still plenty to see and learn about 
  • No se trata de solamente la interesantísima información que este museo proporciona, sino muy especialmente de la impactante construcción, única del autor en América Latina. 
  • O local é lindo, afastado do centro da cidade (é preciso ir de taxi). Tem um ambiente que apresenta a impressionante história de como foi construído esse museu, que é realmente impressionante a arquit...  more »

  • 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.
  • The Gehry design is very cool, and the location is perfect, with great views of the ocean and Panama City. The staff are all knowledgeable and speak English quite well. The museum itself is nice, and should be very understandable for non-scientists. You can take a relaxing walk along the beautiful Amador causeway as well. I'd definitely recommend stopping by if you're in the area.
  • The only Frank Geary building in the Caribbean. Well put together with amazing views of the causeway. Costs $18.00 per adult for non-resident, but well worth it. Super friendly staff.
  • You can spend hours at this place. This museum digs into the biodiversity of Panama both past and present. There's also a great history of people living in Panama too. The building itself is colorful, the surrounding gardens have an impressive rubber tree, and being able to see the ocean is a definite plus.
