Appreciations towards Mallol ArquitectosFernando Alda for providing the following description:


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.

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.
