Panama City Sights

Museo de la Biodiversidad (Museum of Biodiversity)

Fodor's Review

The triangle of land where the Causeway begins is the site of the forthcoming Museo de la Biodiversidad. Also called the "BioMuseo," the museum was designed by the American architect Frank O. Gehry, famous for the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain, and the pavilion at Chicago's Millennium Park. The museum was originally due to open in 2009 but at this writing had fallen considerably behind schedule; it may open in 2013. When completed, it will feature exhibits on the remarkable biodiversity of Panama's forests and oceans, as well as the isthmus's role as a biological bridge between North and South America. In the meantime, you can stop by the construction site and have a look at Gehry's model and the construction work in progress.
