Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Board your air-conditioned transportation for a short drive along the Amador Causeway to the Panama Canal Interoceanic Museum. The museum is located in the Old Quarter of the city and its devoted to tell the history of construction of the Panama Canal by the French, since their first attempt, until the conclusion of the history by the Americans. The museum dates back from 1874 and served originally as the headquarter for both the French and U.S. companies engaged in the construction of the canal.

Upon completion of your museum tour, re-board your transportation for a short, scenic drive to Fort Clayton, the Army base that once housed the Southern Command Headquarters. Here, you'll experience a unique opportunity to see how the US Army troops lived during their stay in Panama. Your tour takes you past the City of Knowledge, which is a joint development of the Panamanian government, several educational institutes, and research companies. Drive through portions of Albrook Air Force Base where the new domestic airport is located and view the section that has been converted into a commercial and high-end residential district.

On your return ride to port, view the tender dock and pass by the community of Balboa, the main area where workers and important buildings were located during the canal's construction.
