Day 66 of 365 Things to Do in Panama
Day 66 of 365 Things to Do in Panama. Breeze through the BioMuseo.
Designed by world-renowned architect Frank Gehry, the Biomuseo is his only work in Latin America and the tropics. The building was designed to tell the story of how the isthmus of Panama rose from the sea, uniting two continents, separating a vast ocean in two, and changing the planet’s biodiversity forever.
The Biomuseo’s 4,000 square meters contain 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 cafe, and multiple outdoor exhibits displayed in the botanical park.
The permanent exhibition is a combination of art and science that leads the visitor to experience a marvelous phenomenon.
