“Go early in the morning”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

Excellent overview of the Locks - we were fortunate there by 9:00 a.m. and 2 ships were going through - fascinating. The museum is truly interesting and very well designed ~ the 3d movie was a bit short, but well worth the experience. $8.00 for over 2 hours of education is well worth it!

“What and experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

The guide here was very interesting, really knew her stuff and was able to answer questions in both English and Spanish. She was enthusiastic and able to "read" her audience to keep them interested.

“informative about the history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

A neat museum that is informative about not just the building of the canal but of panamas history of the Spanish settlers, pirates and about their efforts to be more Eco-friendly.
