Panama Canal Administration Building - Panama

To see the murals you need to go uphill, inside the offices and announce yourself to the security guard to get in. If you visit at night you cannot get into the murals but there is a chance to come across deers that walk around the building surroundings when the area is quiet.

Directions to Panama Canal Administration Building

The Panama Canal Administration Building was inaugurated on July 15, 1914, exactly a month before the official opening of the Panama Canal.

The building is located at the top of a hill in Balboa and overlooks Balboa town and port.

It is a very nice place to take pictures due to its picturesque landscape with a lot of trees, grass and a water fountain below the steps.

The local children also play there, sliding from the top of the hill using cardboard as sleds and if you dare to try it is quite fun.

However, the thing that captivates tourists the most about this landmark is the colorful murals that adorn the ceiling of the inner rotunda. The murals showcase the building of the Panama Canal in four scenes: the Gailllard cut excavation, the Gatun dam construction, the Miraflores Locks construction and the construction of one of the lock gates. These murals were painted by New Yorker William B. Van Ingen, who is also known for his murals in the U.S. Library of Congress, and the Philadelphia Mint.
