We stayed down the street from here and rode our bikes there. On the Panama Canel with a couple mile bike path to the rear. A great area and super nice workers.More

The outside is architecturally stunning. I do wish there was more informational exhibits, but then again, you can learn a lot in a short amount of time. You don’t see real living things though. That, you need to head to another park. Staff are extremely...More

We went to the Frank Gherry-designed Biomuseo on a rainy day in Panama with our 11-year-old son. We had a rental car and Google Map directions worked great. Parking is free. They are still adding sections to the museum, but the majority is open. My...More

The building is really neat, and the exhibit is interesting, but a whole lot of info crammed into a small space. I was surprised it was over so quick! Lots about geology, but really liked the stuff on the endangered species. Bring your student ID...More

When visiting Panama City, the Biomuseo is a “must see” to learn how Panama has changed the world. While you could simply roam the galleries and sample the interactive displays, I recommend picking up a hand-held device at the entrance to connect to the very...More

The building is interesting, but not spectacular. I was disappointed. I did not visit the inside of the museum, as I had read that it was expensive and not interesting. I did enjoy the coffee shop and the gift shop.More
