The next big thing is now, and here’s where to find it.

BioMuseo, Panama City

10 of 26

Architect Frank Gehry makes his long-delayed Latin American debut in February with the multicolored, multi-angled BioMuseo, which tells the story of how the Isthmus of Panama changed the world (spoiler alert: species crossed continents; sea currents and weather, totally boggled). A walkway loops through the 13,000-square-foot museum’s eight galleries—five of which open in 2014—featuring such exhibits as “Worlds Collide,” where visitors can walk among mastodons, sable tigers, and an eight-foot giant sloth. Unfortunately, the double treat of visiting the nearby multibillion-dollar expansion of the Panama Canal, which celebrates its 100th anniversary this year, will have to be put on hold until 2015. biomuseopanama.org
