The Panama Canal Museum (español. Museo del Canal Interoceánico de Panamá) is a non-profit and public museum located in Panama City, Panama.

Established in 1997, the museum is devoted to the history of the construction of the Panama Canal in its various stages, including the first French construction attempt, the later construction by the United States, and the eventual transfer to Panamanian control. The current building dates from 1874 and served originally as the headquarter of both the French and U.S. companies engaged in the construction of the canal. It is located in the city's old quarter.
