Pitt and Jolie Visit Panama Museum Site

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt surprised fans in Panama City on Friday, visiting a souvenir shop, colonial neighborhood and the Panama Canal, where one resident yelled, "Are you Brad Pitt?" The actor smiled and said: "Sometimes."
The Hollywood couple flew to Panama on Thursday, taking a side trip from their holiday stay in Costa Rica.
Besides touring the capital, where they shopped for souvenirs and walked around a colonial neighborhood, Pitt and Jolie visited a former U.S. military base and the construction site of Panama's new Biodiversity Museum, designed by Frank Gehry, at the entrance of the canal in the town of Amador.
The Panama America newspaper ran photos Friday of the 43-year-old actor, who has a love of architecture, and Jolie looking at a model of the museum. They were considering investing in the $56 million project and buying land in Panama, the newspaper reported.
The museum, which will trace Panama's natural history, will include a botanical garden.
Publicists for Pitt and Jolie couldn't be reached for comment.
The couple were to return on Saturday to Costa Rica, where they have been staying at the exclusive Four Seasons Resort in Papagayo on the northern Pacific coast.
Jolie, 31, arrived in Costa Rica last week as part of her work as a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. She and Pitt spent Christmas Day with Colombian refugees.
There are about 11,500 refugees in Costa Rica, most of whom fled Colombia because of the conflict among leftist guerrillas, soldiers and paramilitary forces.
She co-stars in the Universal Pictures drama "The Good Shepherd" with Matt Damon and Robert De Niro. Pitt stars in "Babel," a Paramount Vantage release.
