The museum is just a small place but it contained a lot of items which are so educational and so historical. I congratulate the Mendoza family for preserving the WW2 items and for sharing it to the public to see.

This place should be part of the city tour! For me, as a WW2 freak, it was a wonderful experience. They have loads of pictures and parafernalia from the WW2. The entry is fairly inexpensive and totally worth it (25php if memory serves me right).

I learned a lot during my visit, the stories of loads of forgotten heroes of those days are waiting there to be revealed. I was truly blessed as the founder of the museum himself (Buddy Mendoza) toured us around and he was full of thrilling stories.

I loved it so much that I shortly returned with my girlfriend so she could check it out, but Buddy was gone, and instead a -let's say it- less experienced tour guide toured us around.

Nonetheless go check it out, I'm sure you won't be dissapointed

We took a tricycle from our hotel and the driver was kind enough to wait for us without our asking him to do so. Good thing as getting a ride back was difficult .

This small museum is indeed a labor of love and worth while to visit .
A visit to the Cuartel would add spice to the WW2 history of Palwan.
