The people doing the tours were really great. They explain everything really well. The artifacts are mostly replicas but the place was worth the visit. The tour guides are really proud Palaweños. The place was a little dark and the tourguide uniforms looked old. They should be upgraded.

It seemed nice at the start with the butterflies flying about, some of whom are friendly enough to hold onto to your fingers. The scorpion apparently doesn't sting or is not poisonous, one of those, I didn't wait around to find out. Interesting flora. Then you get to enter the habitat of the indigenous Palaw-ons who play some hauntingly sweet... More

Took a trip here on ou day off in Puerto, very cheap - P50 per person and it was a great exhibit. If you have some down time, this is a great little trip.

If you have time in puerto princesa, you should drop by here. It's only P50 per person. It's a great way to learn about Palawan. It was a short walk from our hotel, and we had some time to kill. Good job, palawan government, for this! They had a hologram, airconditioned rooms, a video presentation of Palawan. It showed spanish,... More

If you want a snapshot of Palawan's history, you came to the right place. It is here where I learned that Palawan was previously known as Paragua during the time of the Spanish colonizers. More interesting facts are up once you visit this heritage center.

Gives a good insight of Palawan history, geography, ethnology and places to visit. There are exhibits, videos, touchscreen and even a holographic visual. It's a small museum but with good enough information. There was already a video presentation going on when we entered. In the confusion, we joined in and later was assigned to a guide. There are a few... More

They have a nice video and nice exhibits about the people, plants and animals of this area. It is designed by the provincial government. It shows current economic and environmental challenges.

I honestly love how Palawan they created this place, they provide everything all about Palawan. So, I suggest, that each tourists should come to this place first before exploring wherever in Palawan you would want. By then, you will realize what you should want to see aside from the stunning beaches in the island.

It was a great last place to visit in Puerto Princesa before boarding our plane back to Manila. It should, however, been the first. I was surprised that we were the only ones visiting the museum, aside from another lady & her son who were as interested as we were in learning more about Palawan. It's a modern museum, merging...

Free entrance with museum tour included. Provides an overview of what can be seen/explored in Palawan. It's sad that only a few know of this place. Will visit again!
