Discover Panama´s most defining moment in the history of engineering as you tour the canal’s most important locks, its fascinating museums and exhibitions. The Panama Canal revolutionised the sailing world and is still a vital feature in global trade to this day.

The tour begins on Panama’s Pacific coast at the Miraflores Locks. Housing a brand new visitors’ centre, this key component of the canal is the ideal point to observe the steady stream of immense vessels that pass through its locks. Take your pick from three separate observation decks to take in all the action.

You will then head into the Miraflores museum, housing four exhibition halls that comprehensively cover all the fascinating history of the canal. From its background and planning to its ever-evolving technology, no stone is left unturned. This is a truly interactive experience including an authentic simulator and a high-tech audio-visual documentary shown in the in-house cinema.

Proceed from the museum to the former military bases of Albrook, now converted into one of Panama’s most fashionable shopping and residential districts, stopping along the way at a traditional local craft market that is perfect for souvenirs.

Finally, round off the tour with the most spectacular sight in the whole city at the Cerro Ancon point. Boasting panoramic views of the sprawling metropolis and the canal that dissects it, this is undoubtedly the ideal spot to reflect and appreciate all you have discovered.
