Very well presented the whole process and difficulties they had building this engineering wonder. Best view over the canal, and if you want to see it action while ships are passing you should visit it around 14 pm

At Miraflores, we watched from the fourth-floor observation deck as a massive freighter navigated the locks of the truly awesome Panama Canal.

Overall, one of the best activities on our 5 day trip to Panama. Easy to get to (we drove our rental car from Gamboa), but the entrance is only marked from the Panama City side. The presentations at the visitor center are a little off....More

The visitor center is truly remarcarle. We were lucky to be able to see a ship going through the canal and our kids were thrilled. The museum was very educational and fun for all ages.

Interesting visit. You pay $20 to entrance fee. Don't think it's worthwhile to go on those expensive tours. Just take a taxi that cost between US$10-12, some will try to charge $15 especially if it's a weekend but negotiate. There are taxi for the return...More
