The Panama Canal Museum, popularly referred to as essentially the Canal Museum, is a public, non-profit museum focused on keeping, investigating, and propagating the testimonies regarding the history of the Panama Canal. The museum is found in the Plaza de la Independencia when you look at the township of San Felipe, part of Panama City's Old Town district.The concept for the museum had been conceived in 1996. Its board of trustees made a decision to rehabilitate the building, which dated to 1874, and opened the renovated museum on September 9, 1997 to celebrate the Universal Congress in the Panama Canal. In ten permanent exhibit halls, the museum shows the real history behind the inter-oceanic path that crosses the isthmus and portrays the building process of the Panama Canal. It narrates how the canal developed and was in the course of time put under Panamanian control, in conformity with the Torrijos-Carter Treaties. Besides, the museum is known to host numerous temporary events on a yearly basis on diverse subjects into the industries of culture, design, record, and environmental conservation.
