It's kind of a "must visit" stop when going to Panama City, as it's really interesting to see how the Locks function. However, it was so crowded that it was hard to get a good view. Further, they really ought to show one film that is both in Spanish and English (i.e. subtitled) rather than separate showings, as not everyone has time to sit around and wait for the next showing in their language. The explanation and signage for film showing times could also be improved. The museum part is good, but not great.
