This is a must see while in Panama. The visitor center is a interesting 4 story facility with 3D movie and observation deck. We watched the ships passing through the locks for hours from the observation deck. Would highly recommend!!

Best time to see ships through locks is in the afternoon, according to official at the locks. Exciting to watch them go through Miraflores.

Go for the full-ride ticket and see the 3D movie and visit the museum. Great for kids and very informative for all!

For a $10 admission fee, see the four-story building which contains a remarkable museum with displays about the building of the Panama Canal and the local area. There is a short and interesting video about the Canal history. The restaurant has great food and you can watch the ships go through the canal as you eat. Well worth seeing.

This is probably one of the things no one should miss when visiting Panama. We were very pleased with the visit and the museum.
