It's difficult to write this, but there just isn't anything substantive to this place that makes it worth the $18 entrance fee. The staff is super helpful and yes, the building was designed by a famous architect, but don't waste your money. If they actually...More

This museum is a bit of a letdown. The Gehry-designed building isn't his best work and the natural history collections are thin and uninspiring for a country with such wealth of biodiversity. Next time we'll try the Smithsonian-sponsored museum further down the causeway.More

You can't miss seeing this building from many vantage points around the area. It focuses on the geological history of Panama which is a recently formed isthmus. You can see how Panama changed the world.More
