approximately 15-minute walk from the old Puerto Princesa Airport. Although the size, place has tons of information about PPS history. I had to walk from here to PEO road to ride a tricycle back to our place, though.

The place is small but it has a lot of displays and WWII items to display. It is well organized and very informative about the war history in Palawan. Nice place for veterans to explore

A good way to spend an hour or so while you are waiting for a flight. It's close to the airport. It's quite informative if you're into military history and want to learn about ww2 fighting around palawan.
