One of the most interesting sites on this tour are the Miraflores Locks of the Panama Canal where you might be able to witness the raising or lowering of a ship as it passes through this impressive engineering feat completed in 1914. The Miraflores Visitors Center also contains a Canal Museum which holds information on its history from the first construction efforts by the French to its newexpansion.
