On its first year, promotion drives were undertaken and on its first Anniversary of the Palawan Museum, the old City Hall was fully occupied by the Museum, after it was renovated through financial assistance from the Countrywide Development Funds of Congressman Alfredo E. Abueg Jr. of the Second District of Palawan. On the same occasion, the Memorandum of Agreement was signed between the City Government and the Foundation, leasing the building to the Foundation for 25 years and embodying the pledge of financial support by the City Government through City Mayor Edward S. Hagedorn.

Interesting collection of cultural artifacts and shells. We found the information boards about the various Palawan cultural groups and the prehistoric settlements the most interesting. Only 60 pesos..... more

A must visit when you’re in Puerto Princessa. Sadly, it’s not offered in any of the city tours. You can still visit privately. You can go here via public transpo (trike or multi-cab). Transpo via multi cab is cheaper. The entrance fee to the museum is P50. There are no guides but the information posted for each exhibit is sufficient . There are two floors for this museum. I particularly enjoyed the exhibit about the version of Baybayin that originated in Palaw’ an. I also bought a T-shirt with Baybayin print that can only be found in the museum.
The museum is a little bit old but you will understand the Palawenos culture in the displayed artifacts. You need to pay 50 pesos as entrance fee for adult.
