Palawan Museum. The museum at the park.

If you want to know the place your visiting, check the museum and they will definitely provide you information’s about its people and of course the historical background, in the Philippines museum is everywhere, most City or even struggling municipality have museum that showcase their culture and things that they can be proud of.
In Puerto Princesa City, there are three museum that you can visit and in this page I’ll bring you to the oldest one that is run by a foundation, the Palawan museum is house in one of the most powerful house in the City, its building is the former City Hall of Puerto Princesa located in the historical Mendoza Park, a tribute to provincial hero name Dr. Higenio Mendoza.
To be honest, Palawan Museum have gone out of style, it is still the same since the day one I visit it many-many years ago, its exhibitions and depiction of Palawan history, culture and even anthropologic explanations are seemingly old and need to be replace, I didn’t know if there is such valuable item or precious things that can be best seen inside. When I was there just this April of 2018, there was no curator or guide explaining what you will see inside, once you pay the entrance fee they will just let you go through with exhibits from first floor up to the second floor.
There are many discoveries in Palawan in the past year, I’ve heard the Pagdanan wreck in San Vicente, the wreck in Balabac, the Elle Cave of El Nido and many other, but none of this is shown here in Palawan Museum, or maybe those artifacts belongs now to the National museum or the research or studies is still on going.
One strong exhibit inside is the Pagdiwata ritual of Tagbanua people, this piece of exhibit will explain how this full moon dance became a art tag in terms of dance in Palawan.
But one thing good about Palawan Museum is their library, if you need thorough research anything about Palawan they have it all, from old files, manuscripts and books they got it all.
Above all its still a worth a visit, museum is still the best way to know the roots of one place.
