Its a little expensive for adults, compared to what you actually see. It would be perfect for families. Great guides, helpful staff, and the cafe is not overly expensive. Overall a good and educational experience.

Fantastic museum! Signage is excellent in both Spanish and English. Staff is supremely helpful and will walk with you to explain even more about the exhibits. I read everything and spent close to 3 hours there. As of October 2019 everything was finished.

I wanted to see the architecture, and I loved it. The museum ranges in time from prehistoric to current day. They have an aquarium and all kinds of cool exhibits for adults and children. It's very much about saving the planet. GO!!

When we came here, we didn't know what to expect. We don't really like going to museums, but this one is very interactive and informative at the same time. We spent a couple of hours here. Worth the visit.

The architecture of the building alone is worth the trip as this building was designed by Frank Gehry. The museum describes how Panama, an isthmus, was formed, its history in terms plants, animals, and peoples, and why there is so much diversity. Don't just explore...More

An outstanding artistic compound with its iconic uncommonly designed cannopies. Well located at the south side of Amador, at the central hemisphere of the Panama City. A must go place when visiting and exploring Panama City.
