Make sure to stop by this museum before you enter Panama Viejo. Although the exhibits are a bit stuffy and there are too many panels that are not translated into English, it does provide an overview of what Panama Viejo is all about. Don't miss the reconstruction in miniature of the old city which gives you a great idea of... 更多
It's a nice place to visit and to know more information of the history of Panama however there was no one inside to explain each thing even if there's paper saying each stuff, poor quality not even a paper for tourist to explain more and also have something to remember visit. Was expensive $30.00 , $25.00 I remember they were... 更多
This is a small museum near the viejo section of Panama City. You can go through it fairly quickly and it gives you basic historical information about the city and its history.Our Caravan tour took us here. You might want to go to this museum prior to walking around the old city.
This museum is an addition to the ruins of Panama Viejo. It's best to start the tour here to get upfront information before you go to se the ruins.
For anyone wanting to find out more about the history of Panama City than the small museum of Panama Viejo is worth a quick visit. I purposely say quick as there is not much to see and very little background literature. The best exhibit from my perspective was the model of Panama Viejo itself and this is most helpful when... 更多
A small museum with limited English explanations of the displays. It is a prelude to actually going out to the site to see the ruins of Pueblo Viejo. If you are into ruins you will like this place. There is an artesan mall located next door to shop for locally made items.

You can walk around and enjoy the ruins. You can even walk up the tower of the church that remains then you can take... 更多
The museum and the ruins tell the story of one of the first settlements in the Americas. The museum has signs in limited English. The ruins give you an idea of the life here centuries ago. The climb to the top of the Cathedral is worth it for the view of the city.
I'm ashamed to say it but, this place needs to be fixed. The AC was low, the signs are mostly in spanish (english should be a good choice too). The floor was dirty, the employees were in corners saying jokes, two employees hidding behind a bar proyecting peevishness. The bus drivers were concient of their roles in promoting Panama, congrats!.
We wandered around here on an extremely hot day. It was 8 buck US per person to wander among the ruins. If you are into historical ruins, then this is your place. We just stayed outside and checked it out. They are over 500 years old and you can see they have made efforts to keep some pieces from falling... 更多
