Very accessible, found in the city proper, near the capitol building. very informative about palawan especially the different natives living in the island. This is not the typical old style museum..very modern cause they even have hologram.. 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.

Lots of pictures and displays and we also got a private tour guide that was very charming and knowledgeable. Well worth the 50php donation. And it was nice to learn a little bit about the colonial and indigenous history of Palawan.

The heritage center was our first stop in Puerto Princesa. We learned quite a lot from our guide, Ms. Sharon who was very accommodating. The area was quite small for a museum but was nevertheless informative. They require a hefty 50 Php entrance fee though. Just OK to visit if you have spare time and budget.
