Magic and mystery behind the walls crammed with history is reflecting the national museum of the Panama Canal so much history to learn enjoying a fantastic tour of the museum facilities of the Panama Canal, we could traverse ten (10) times and would ask back to the because it seems enough time to know the magical way as bold men through history divided the Americas to connect the world.

The construction of the Panama Canal was marked by the heroism and courage of many men, bold men who sought a place in the history of mankind, and really able to build the work that united the world. Its large locks that allow the passage of large vessels were built by extracting a lot of material (earth removed), from which this sample of soil composition that was removed was saved.
In the picture shows three types of rock taken from the construction of the locks, some of this rock is a little rocky clayey and another. Rock levels also show the degree of hardness and difficulty present at the time of the construction of the canal.
The reddish rock belongs to the first layer of soil found in the dig, the darker rock belongs to the deep rock which has a harder consistency and difficult to extract.
