Must go to this place on 1st day

Free entrance with museum tour included. Provides an overview of what can be seen/explored in Palawan. It's sad that only a few know of this place. Will visit again!

But im not impressed with my guide though, he constantly leaves me alone and never bothered to do the usual explanation or talk,... More

The place is a treasure chest of knowledge in Palawan, If your not sure, which historical place you wanted to go first, be sure to dropped by on this place. They can give you tons of suggestion on which place you can visit first. Lots of choices for the historical buff and adventurous at heart.

Informative, interactive, and some interesting historical stuffs, while attempt to spend your time waiting for departure. Not necessarily terrible, but need some interest in historical and geographical stuffs to enjoy the visit.

The price is right because it's free and part of the packages. Surprisingly, it was comfortable there and the people really care about their heritage and they are willing to pass that info along to you.
