This is a part of our DYI tour and its near the place were we stayed. The tour was great, well explained and informative. Its airconditioned. The tour guide was pleasant and friendly.

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!

This place deserves a visit and should be better known. Some artworks by the local artists are really impressive, the finds are well-preserved and you can learn a lot about Palawan history during the tour. Very interesting exhibition.

Like the video presentation and its a guided tour for 50 pesos. There was a chinese lesson going on when I went there which means I was not able to see the paintings of the palawenyo artists. Good enough for a spin in the city.

This is also not a very well-known spot but is a definite must-see in Puerto Princesa. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. The artworks are made by local artists and some of the in-house artists of the museum perform the guided tours themselves. One...More

My friends, who were locals, brought me to this heritage center. I was blown away with what I saw! I thought it deserved more than the PHP 50.00 donation that we gave as entrance fee. For one, the layout was well planned and strategically arranged....More

The Palaweño tour guides are very proud of their heritage and they are well informed. They communicate well and were very friendly. The place is nice but needs a little rehabilitation. The place looks so dark in some areas. I highly recommend this to know...More
