Directions to BioMuseo Panama
Designed by the world-renowned architect Frank Gehry, the Biomuseo is his first work in Latin America and in the tropics. The building was designed to tell the story of how the Isthmus of Panama emerged from the sea, uniting two continents, separating a large ocean in two and changing the biodiversity of the planet forever. The 4000-square-meter museum contains eight permanent exhibition galleries designed by Bruce Mau Design. In addition to the main spaces, the museum includes a public atrium, a space for temporary exhibitions, a shop, a cafeteria and multiple outdoor exhibitions arranged in a botanical park. The permanent exhibition is a combination of art and science, which will give visitors the feeling of being in front of an amazing phenomenon.
The Biomuseo is located on the Calzada de Amador, a prominent area at the entrance to the Panama Canal in the Pacific Ocean. From the Biomuseo you can clearly see the profile of the modern city, Casco Antiguo, Cerro Ancón and Puente de las Américas. The area was restricted to Panamanians while the old Canal Zone operated.
The Biodiversity Park is a living extension of the architecture of the museum, its exhibitions and programs. An oasis with diverse experiences: shade and shelter, a safe place to observe nature, a place to learn and to celebrate. A selection of endemic and native plants will continue to tell the stories that began in the central exhibition tour. Each plant is chosen for its natural beauty, its adaptation to the site and the legend it tells us; whether about the history of Panama, food, housing, symbiotic relationships, fruits or flowers.
Biodiversity Gallery: An introduction to the subject of biodiversity and the work of local scientists, with a large multicolored glass wall, 14 meters long and 8 meters high, will display images of the plants and animals of the country
Panamarama: A projection space of three heights and ten screens will immerse the visitor in an audiovisual presentation of the natural wonders of Panama
The Surge Bridge: An installation that includes three rock formations 14 meters high, illustrates the emergence of the isthmus and its effect on climate and evolution
The Great Exchange: Two large sculptural groups of animals represent the megafauna that was part of the great exchange of species that took place between North and South America when they joined the isthmus of Panama after 70 million years of separation
The Human Footprint: In a partially open outdoor space, 16 columns will tell the story of humans on the isthmus and their interactions with the nature of Panama from 15,000 years ago to the present day
Divided Oceans: Two semi-cylindrical high-altitude aquariums will show how the Pacific and the Caribbean evolved drastically differently when separated by the creation of the isthmus
The Living Network: A dramatic sculpture - at the same time plant, animal, insect and microorganism - will produce in the visitor the effect of being in a dimension where all creatures have the same importance
Panama is the Museum: This gallery, which serves as an interface between the interior spaces of the Biomuseo and the Biodiversity Park, will help visitors to program their true journey through the biodiversity of Panama
