Great way to spend an hour or two

50 PHP entry price was worth it for the experience inside the museum! Personally I love museums that showcase history, culture and ethnology of a place and this ticked all the boxes. What’s better is amazingly we had someone with us all the way through the museum. Someone takes you through the first section and then someone else just appears and guides you through the art collection, then he disappears and suddenly you have another guide explaining to you the history etc...
Many of the guides are artists or musicians themself and sometimes have performances there. We found them quite knowledgeable when asking about the different tribes and customs and beliefs of the many peoples originating from Palawan. If you have a morning or afternoon to spare in your trip to Puerto Princesa I recommend you check this out.

It's surprising that the tour around the museum was just 50 pesos! We were led by very good museum guides and we learned a lot regarding art and history. I'm not usually fond of museums but I'd gladly return to this one.

Learning the Culture to Appreciate it.

Must visit place before going to any place in Palawan. It will help you appreciate the island better. There are educated tour guides who will introduce you to different paintings, historical artifacts, life-size figures representing the tribes. Prepare an entrance fee of 50 pesos ($1).

This was a very interesting place to visit and provides a good overview of the history of the area, its customs and heritage. It is modern and very well presented. I would particularly like to thank the very friendly and helpful young guides who provided such a good and clear description of the various sections of the center. I thought they were excellent.

What a lovely little museum this is detailing the history and different indigenous people of Palawan.
For the entrance price of 50 Peso’s also includes a free guided tour ( you can go back and explore the museum at your own pace afterwards if you desire ).
The displays are good; I found the museum to be interesting, educational and well worth a visit...

We were greeted by the staff who in turn explained every part of the museum. We were able to ask questions and for somebody who is info-hungry about the place, he/she will surely be pleased and satisfied with the staff! Thanks much!
