Conceptualized by the Provincial Cultural Office under the Office of the Governor. The PHC hopes to preserve and to promote the rich cultural heritage of the province that has evolved through time, considering that Palawan is a home to its different ethno-linguistic groups like the Batak, Palaw’an, Tagbanua and Tao’t Bato; and also a melting pot of various migrants from many different regions. It showcases the life, rich culture and history of the proud Palaweños who considered Palawan to be their Home and Haven.
The PHC is educational, highly informative, and entertaining. It contains artifacts as old as 300 years, old photos, life sized dioramas, interactive modules like hologram, computerized touch screens, information kiosks, maps and
learning stations that make it more interesting and a high tech educational venue for the Palaweños and local or international visitors or tourists to the province.
It tells the story of Palawan in the context of Philippine history, which hopes to create awareness of the province‘s rich cultural heritage, history, its natural resources, its diverse peoples, which would lead to the appreciation of the province from a historical, artistic, environmental and economic viewpoint.

Fun and educational experience to learn about Palawan’s people, history and culture. It also provides local artists a place to showcase their work. Incredibly friendly staff. Highly recommended.
It's very interesting, 2 videos are shown, also about the Cavemen. Fascinated me. Pictures and recycled art by young artists are exhibited. Ticket 50 Pesos each person for 30 to 45 minutes guiding.
