15 Virtual Tours in Panama

virtual tours

I am very happy that in Panama virtual visits are offered to places of interest, being, the majority, museums.

Although at the moment there are not many, thanks to the quarantine, the places are reinventing themselves and little by little they are adding more, in part, it is thanks to the La Autoridad de  Turismo de Panama (Tourism Authority of Panama) that it has had the initiative to create a series of virtual visits, either by video or 360º tour.

There are also some virtual tours that, although they were not made for tourist purposes, are from tourist sites, some of them are from natural places and offer us a beautiful aerial view.

Some are:

1.   Mola Museum, MUMO

This museum provides us with a short video, in which a guide explains and shows us the museum.

Booking.com

On its YouTube account or on the Tourism Authority website we can take a tour to the Museum, it shows us the meaning of the Molas and how they are made, in addition to the puberty ceremony and the protection elements of the Gunas.

I had the opportunity to visit this museum, it is quite new and I was surprised, how beautiful it is, all the information it has and how well it is guided.

If you want to know more, I invite you to visit my post about it here.

2.   Panama Canal Administratio Building

This is one of the few places in the world that has left me with my mouth open, once I enter (I worked there and I had to go) and for a few seconds I was shocked by how beautiful it is, luck they did not scold me hahaha.

The tour does not show all the beauty, but it gives a screenshot and it is good that we can do the virtual tour because, non-workers are not allowed to enter that building, it also shows the surroundings of the Administration Building.

Information is in English and Spanish.

Take a virtual tour here.

4.   National Teather

On the website of the Ministry of Culture you can find the link to tour this beautiful Panama theater, which is neoclassical in style, has a beautiful fresco on the ceiling, golden details and an epic atmosphere.
