Board an air-conditioned coach for a short transfer to the famous Frank Gehry-design Biomuseum. The Biomuseum tells the story of the physical rise of the Isthmus of Panama and how this cataclysmic event changed the natural world as we know it today. This museum is affiliated to the Smithsonian Institute, making Panama the first country outside of the US to have this type of affiliation.
Panama was chosen as the location of the Biomuseum due to its staggering biodiversity and its fascinating history. Through the Biomuseum, visitors discover the biodiversity value this country offers. Its objectives are to educate, create interchange of the natural and cultural resources of Panama, and focus knowledge regarding the environment and its conservation. The museum recounts the rise of the Isthmus, including the biological and climatic changes that continue to transform the natural world. Spend approximately 90 minutes at the museum with an audio-guide to take you through the five different galleries.
Next, sit back and relax as you take a panoramic drive along the Cinta Costera 3 route and the busy waterfront boulevard known as Avenida Balboa, which offers great views of the Bay of Panama and Panama City's historic district -- the Casco Viejo.
Your coach will wind its way back to your waiting ship.
