From the Biomuseo, observe the skyline of the modern city, the historic district, Ancon Hill, and the Bridge of the Americas.
What is biodiversity? Why should we care? What is happening to it today? The first gallery is an introduction to Panamas amazing natural heritage.
It is surrounded by an endless number of living beings and communities. A three level projection space with 10 screens envelop the visitor in a display of sight and sound featuring Panamas natural wonders.
Building the Bridge:
Panama emerged from the sea 3 million years ago. Earths inner forces that formed the Isthmus of Panama take the form of three 14 meter high rock formations, allowing for a tangible encounter with the geological world.
When the Isthmus closed an extraordinary exchange of species occurred between North and South America. A stampede of animal sculptures of all eras, shapes and sizes tell the story of this unique and ongoing natural event.
The Human Path
In a space partially open to the outdoors 16 columns provide information about the relations between human activity and the natural scenarios of Panama throughout time.
Added to the Permanent Exhibition, the visitor can enjoy temporary exhibits. From fossils found during the excavation expansion of the Panama Canal, to Frank Gehrys work n our country and around the world, these are examples of the exhibits that have been shown.
A living exhibit that broadens the content presented in the museums galleries, it complements it them with a larger exhibit with plants from North and South America, an ethnobotanical station and an interdependent forest with flowers that attract pollinators like butterflies and hummingbirds. The use of the park is free.
