History Museum
Learn about the history and the endeavor of building the Panama Canal at Museo del Canal Interoceanico de Panama, which traces a timeline from its initial French beginnings to its completion by the U.S. and its eventual handover to Panama. Experience a captain's-eye view of the canal with the opportunity to sit on the bridge of a typical ship, and explore what life was like for the construction workers who built this major feat of engineering. The displays are in Spanish only, but you can pick up audio guides for a small charge.
