If you are interested in the history of Palawan spent some time in the musuem. We were alone in the place and had all the time to look at artefacts, pictures and reding some of the labelling. It's not sensational but we enjoyed our visi.

Was disappointed with this museum to be honest. I was hoping that there would be more inside the museum but not really. It was small but the caretakers were very nice and accommodating. My mother and I were the only ones there when we visited. It's not a bad museum really, I guess I was just expecting more.

You can visit this museum during a walk around the city. Only 20peso I think It's an old building and you can see some native items and read about it.

The ground floor consists only a few amateurish paintings of fauna and flora and mere replicas of finds from the Tabon Caves. Nonetheless, it does give some sense of the rich prehistoric finds unearthed on the island.... More
