The visitor center not only provides a great view of the ships going through the locks, but show a 20 minute video and has a museum giving you the history behind what you see live. They really do a terrific job.

At US20 per head you get access to a film, which is about Panama's struggle to get control over the Canal Zone rather than the history of how the canal was built, and a museum which gets better as you go up each floor. You...More

We really enjoyed this place, you need to arrive early A.M. (at opening) to see boats going through the locks. The museum is one of the best I have seen, loads of pictures, artifacts, small models, it was truly a great visit. MFC-Montreal

Worth the visit. Good educational experience. But in the steep side but worth it in the end. Take the metro 1 to albrook mall then bus 810 straight to the visitors center. Costs about 60 cents. Skip taking a cab.

First.... getting there by UBER or Taxi is the easiest and fastest. But if you prefer to save some money and go by bus.... it’s also quite simple. Take metro to Albrook station (0.35cents) and take bus from Albrook directly to Miraflores Lock (0.25cents). Check...More

It is a very interesting experience but a little bit boring and expensive. There is another museum of the Canal at Casco Viejo that is far more interesting and more afordable.
