Featured Destination – Frank Gehry’s Biomuseo





Panama City


Recently opened the well-known architect Frank Gehry’s first project in Latin America, the Biomuseo/ Museum of Biodiversity. The Museum, with it bright colors of blue, red, orange and yellow has a focus on Panama’s biodiversity as a biological bridge between the Americas. It is located in the Amador area at the entrance of the Canal.  It has wonderful displays in 43,000 sq. ft. of new galleries including two, two-story large aquariums, one for the species of the Pacific and one for those of the Caribbean. Tours are available on Saturdays of the construction site. I was fortunate to have a tour, with two other Americans, by an American volunteer. The site and architecture are spectacular.

After the museum, you can continue to the end of the Amador Causeway where you will find some shopping, restaurants and great views of the city.
