“Great View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2013

We had a great view of the works on the new channel. The film was good too. Worth a visit. (Bathrooms are good and clean.)

“Visit History”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2013

While over 100 years old, the Milaflores Locks remain a technical marvel. Definitely worth the short trip to see ships pass through the locks. Best to come in the morning or afternoon when traffic is at its heaviest. Visitor center is mixed.

“Worth visiting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2013

I spent about two hours here, but the main attraction is the view of the locks. They also have a museum and a 3D movie. The movie can definitely be skipped.

“Very well done”

The display arevery wel presented and quite interesting from an engineering stand point. The simulator of the control deck of a ship going though the canal was amazing.

“Boring”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2013

This place was pretty boring. I thought seeing the Canal would be awesome but it is definitely not. You watch a movie which I am sure you can see on youtube and see a crappy museum.
