Museum of Freedom and Human Rights

The Museum of Freedom and Human Rights is born from the conviction that every person
has inviolable individual rights, which we are called to defend and never allow to be
violated by the State.

It is a museum of individual and collective memory, which documents the events and
milestones that have occurred in the course of the evolution of democracy and human
rights in Panama and worldwide. Its values are: to be reliable, inclusive, educational,
dynamic and universal.

The Museum of Freedom and Human Rights is located in the Amador area, in a lot next to
the entrance of the Bridge of the Americas, with direct link to the Balboa sector and the
Amador road.

The buildings that make up the project are arranged respecting the vegetation of the land
and the topography of the site, and are distributed around a space formed in front of an
existing large Corotú tree, which serves as a focal point and gives importance to the site.
The access to the project is given through the Plaza de la Democracia, a square on the Via
Amador that pays tribute to the managers of democracy, and allows the entrance to the
Equality Building, which corresponds to a construction with exhibition areas and A small
administrative area.

The content of the exhibition is divided into three levels, which are run from top to bottom,
starting with the human rights timeline where historical events are related, continuing with
the description of the 30 articles of the universal declaration of human rights and
culminates with success stories.

In the future, on an internal circulation, around a central courtyard around the Tree, two
exhibition buildings, one called the Memory Building, and the other Tolerance Building, will
be located in later stages.

From this central space, departures to routes in the open area have been considered. A
staircase will allow you to find the Human Rights Walk, located in the lower part of the lot, a
situation that allows you to generate grandstands, to create a small outdoor auditorium on
one side, and in the other sector of the square 30 informative monoliths, which will contain
information on each of the human rights articles.
