Natural Science Museum (Museo de Ciencias Naturales )

This museum opened its doors on 1 st December 1975. It is located on the first floor of the building next to Ave. Cuba Calles 29 y 30, which housed the National Museum for more than three decades. Panama City Museums are an important part of any Panama City itinerary. Visiting Panama City museums is the most recommended way understanding the vast and often misquoted history of Panama, particularly its early and colonial rulers. Panama boasts of a rich history that spans across more than 10,000 years. Due to its unique location, the historic displays represent influences of many surrounding, Central & South American cultures. Panama’s importance in world history is underlined by the presence of many World Heritage Sites that have become preferred traveling destinations among tourists. Research, collection, classification, conservation and exhibition of representative specimens of geology, palaeontology and the local and foreign animal life are amongst its main goals. Likewise, the museum intends to disseminate matters relating to the value, significance, conservation and protection of the country’s natural resources, making an emphasis on endangered plant and animal species. The museum has a small specialized room, a conference and temporary exhibition room as well as a taxidermy laboratory for preservation and conservation of biological material, all this has been possible thanks to the students’ will and collaboration. The Museum has an attractive Vertebrates Room divided into four sections: Mammals, Birds, Reptiles and Amphibious species. The Entomology and Sea Biology Room and the Foreign Animals Room contain specimens in a good state of preservation.
