Learnt a lot about Palawan's part in the world war 2, and there are lots of uniforms from different countries, weapons that were used, written histories about life in WW2 etc., but also a pair of Imelda Marcos' red shoes are on display.

I think not everyone will be thrilled to visit this museum, however, if you really want to know a bit of history of Palawan, you should visit this museum. And after visiting this place, you should also visit the Plaza Cuartel - which played a big part during the WWII.

Would recommend this site as most of the displayed memorabilia is of a private collection coupled with donations. It sounds very small considering and the premise is small but the girl who guided us through the display was very knowledgeable. It is gard to believe there was nothing on Palawan until after world war II.

Saw their tarp at Plaza Cuartel and asked the tricycle driver to take us to the museum. It was very educational and interesting. The owner collected a lot of good stuff. Thank you for sharing it to the public. The curator was also very knowledgeable and patient with our oohs and aahs. Lol. As bf and i are fans of... More

This is a small intimate museum with plenty of exhibits to appreciate. It was our first time there and we were surprise to be taken around personally by a member of the staff. Highly recommended for visit.
