El Caño Museum

The magnificent pre-Columbian artifacts found at the El Caño archeological site in Natá, in the province of Coclé, Panama can finally be viewed by the public.

This milestone comes after ten years of excavations, carried out by the El Caño Foundation under the tutelage of the archeologist Julia Mayo, and a year of remodeling the site’s museum. On April 12, the museum opened its doors to offer visitors a scientific look at the life and death of the first settlers of Coclé, including insights into their social structure, funerary customs, and world view.

Visits to the museum are available by appointment by writing to or calling 507 228 3317.

Open Tuesday through Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Site web:
