Visit the BioDiversity Gehry Museum- This a Big Deal for PanamaTourism

We recently took a tour of the of the still infinished Biodiversity Museum designed by Frank Gehry on the Amador Causeway. The tour includes an presentation by Ing. Margo Lopez. She shows a video of that the seven major exhibits will look like. One cannot help getting excited by her presentation- Why? Because the exhibits are so unique and outstanding that you can believe this this museum will be a major tourism destination by itself, just as in Miraflores Locks which receives over 600,000 visitors a year. In fact KPMG did a study on the Gehry museum and calculated it will attract 500,000 visitors a year.

The museum is successfully  getting multi-million dollar  corporate sponsorships of the seven exhibits.

Many in the hotel industry are wondering how we are going to fill all those new hotel rooms. The Gehry Biodiversity Museum is an answer.

The tours take place every Friday. You can sign up on the link below. Make sure and follow the instructions on what to where. ( The tour of the construction site requires certain shoes etc.)
