if you are in panama you really need to check this out. We did two tours, a partial transit of the canal (2 locks) and then on another day visited this centre. It was great and very informative. its so amazing seeing this HUGE ships go through what seems a small canal. very well organized and lots of interactive things to keep all ages entertained.

Thank sylveeeee

Panama Canal is one of the world's marvels and it has to be seen if you are in Panama. The Visitor Center gets very busy, so you better arrive around 8:45 AM.

The museum was very interesting and multi-story (not what we initially expected). The employees were friendly, and security wasn't too much of a hassle. I recommend this Visitor Center because of the observation deck by the locks. You can observe ships in and out of the locks with relative ease and be exposed to some great history in the process.

The panama Canal, was so big, also it has inside there are a museum about the history of the canal, however there so crowd of people around the world and there no air so its very hot, you can see the ships and the stuff in a balcony up of the building, However it has a great museum down, near the entrance.

Well worth staying for a few hours, so go out by bus or taxi rather than on a trip. In my experience the ships can arrive at any time, and as I was still there much after most people had left, I was lucky to see an enormous cruise liner, the Queen Victoria, as well as a large container ship, arrive at the same time, quite a spectacle. The museum in the visitor centre is very informative as well, and the viewiing section exvcellent.
