The Biomuseo presents the incredible natural history of Panama and explains how the rise of the Isthmus changed the world forever. Its exhibits are housed in the only building in Latin America designed by renowned architect Frank Gehry. Its unusual shapes and bright colors are a reflection of the exuberant biodiversity and colorful culture of Panama. The content was curated by the two most important scientific institutions in the country: the University of Panama and the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute. The Biomuseo sits right by the entrance to the Panama Canal in a place called Amador, one of the most representative sites in the city. Amador functioned as a US military base for more than 60 years. This base was in charge of guarding and defending the Canal, but today the same place is dedicated to celebrating all the diversity of life from Panama.
