I wish that the collections were better arranged. Not too many interesting items on display. Needs some refurbishing

... and I'm even not talking about the facilities. It's nice to know a bit of history, but all facts are contained in one long long text beside the section, and no descriptions of the artifacts. So it seems like you're just looking at things. It could be nice if you could hire a guide to discuss the facts; if... More

We went there to visit the and see what history to learn inside the place. A lot of things to learn about Palawan History. BUT for me i think there's a lot more needed to be added in the museum. My girls enjoyed the short visit (10mins). Entrance fee for adult 50pesos and for children it's 10pesos.

The Palawan Museum is small. You can finish looking at every exhibit in 20 minutes or less. Entrance fee for Adults is P50. Not really a must visit but if you want a peek into the past of Palawan then go.

One has to give it to the people running this place -- despite their meager resources and the apathy towards museums and history and culture in general, they've managed to keep this place running. It could use a major boost, though, and need not look further than the nearby Palawan Heritage Center for inspiration.

Dusty and poor lighting and ventilation as well. The front desk will just let you roam around. Artifacts were not strategically displayed making it more and more boring as you roam around.

The place gives a good idea of the history of the area. However, there are no guides, no signages even in the area. It's small, but well-kept. No visible signs of dust, but quite warm to visit since it is not air-conditioned.

A nice little museum with interesting things inside. The fee is only 20 PHP. Good to visit if you have time to spare. Closing time is 4pm or 5pm I think. But for me I think The Heritage is much better and they have interactive displays.

Nice collection of odds and ends from various parts of the province. Could use a little upkeep, but still worth the visit if you want some cool trivia about the culture and history of Palawan.
