We arrived about 30 minutes before close. We would have had to pay full price. Restaurant was already closed and you could pretty much see the canal and goings on from the upper parking lot for free. Traffic was bad getting here.

The museum is very small, but we had a great view of the Mira Flores locks and commentary on what was happening. I would recommend doing the cruise instead as the visitors' center may be pricey for a family.

Watch the movie. Wait for ships to cross and see the museum. Well worth it even if you, like me, are not engineering savy.

The best part of this is how close to the city these locks are. You can easily get there via public transportation as many have noted. Or a really cheap Uber ride, which many have also noted. They do have notes placed at the ticket...More

The Museum is a must see - a lot of very interesting information that is easy to digest. Kinda wish we would have had enough time to watch the Imax film too. Only disappointing item was the amount of people on the top floor to...More

The museum tells the complete story of the building of the Canal & is located on 3 different floors. Fascinating to learn of the blood, sweat & tears that went into the building of this wonder of the world.
