“Hidden Gem of an Attraction in El Valle de Anton”

The Anton Valley Historical and Cultural Museum
Attraction details
Reviewed 15 April 2017

As a student of Panamanian history I had really wanted to see the Victoriano Lorenzo Museum in El Valle (he led un unsuccessful revolt against Colombia and was executed by firing squad in the Plaza de Francia in Casco Viejo in Panama City), but I wasn't prepared for the excellent curation and presentation of the geological and preColombian history of the El Valle region. The guide Giselle was thoroughly knowledgable and helpful and if you don't speak Spanish her English is very good as well. This is one hidden gem well worth the stop.

This was a true discovery. First time visiting the museum and what a joy it was. The guide (Gisela) is the most nice and knowledgeable young girl you could ask for. The information and the archaeological pieces are truly amazing.
This will decently become a most for us in our future visits.

They have some of the history about the volcano that preceded El Valle, also some cultural history.

It is a really small museum. I think the smallest I have ever visit but is good to visit to have some idea of where are you with out taken so much of your time. Something I really enjoyed was the small house they have which is typical of the zone in a long time ago

We had so see the museum with a guide, problem is we do not speak Spanish and the guide did not speak English. Most of the write ups were in Spanish only so we were not able to understand what things were. If you speak Spanish you would likely enjoy this place more than we did. The museum is very small you can see the entire place in less than a half hour.
