“Really good”
Reviewed 14 August 2014 via mobile

I loved the museum. There is a mix between the old and the new, you can get there from the albrook subway station and take a metrobus saying albrook - panama viejo-costa del este, in order to do this you need a card that can be get in the albrook station just with your passport. Cost of trip:0.35 cents. The bus will take you in front of the museum. You can see how was fund panama beacause there are ols buildinga and the main tower that you can go up and has an amazing view of the new panama. To get of there you can get another metrobus in the ezit of the museum, cross the street and it will take you to albrook main station. From albrook you can go anywhere

“casco viejo”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

Great old city. Wonderful architect and all on the ocean. Walk along the walkway and enjoy ocean view, Vendors are low key and not pushy. View the old buildings and patios and lots of great little restaurants and bars to have a beer.

great place to walk around. You really get a sense of history as you walk around. There are a lot of spots to take pictures.

“Do a Drive By”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

Unless you want to climb the tower, you can see it by driving by and not paying to go in. There is not a lot to see or read about.
