Biomuseo

Biomuseo (Edificio 136, Calzada de Amador, Panama City) – a.k.a. Museum of Biodiversity, this multicolor structure, designed by well-known architect Frank Gehry and located at the Amador Causeway, houses a museum that focuses on the history of the isthmus and the species it engendered.  For example, the “Oceans Divided” hall highlights a pair of semi-cylindrical, two-story aquariums displaying the different life that developed in the Pacific and Caribbean.  The two masses of water are separated at their narrowest point by just 30 miles of land. But, as the BioMuseo proves, they are worlds apart.   Admission:  $2 (adult), $1 (children and seniors).  Hours:  12 Noon to 5:00 pm (Saturdays & Sundays only).  Visit its website for more details:  www.biomuseopanama.org
