Smithsonian Punta Culebra Nature Center

Wikipedia: The Marine Exhibition Center of Punta Culebra or Punta Culebra Nature Center is an open-air museum located in Panama City, on one of the islands connected by the Amador Causeway. It is operated by the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute, also located in Panamá. The center focuses mainly on marine biodiversity and conservation in tropics. Among its attractions, there are many exhibits, aquariums, and a trail to a stretch of tropical dry forest. A special water tank, known as "touching pool", allows visitors to directly touch some marine animals, such as sea turtles or starfishes.
