Entrance fee 30p. Nice little museum, maybe more interesting for history lovers. Good for a short stop if you happen to pass it. You can wear a uniform and helmet and sit in the armytruck to pose for a photo.

Nice private museum. They have lots of WWII artifacts I haven't seen before. The staff was friendly and one nice young lady accompanied me throughout to answer any questions I may have had. I'd recommend this, especially if you are interested in WWII history.

Was able to appreciate the importance of Palawan during World War 2 as a strategic island for defence. We saw world war 2 bombs, rifles and even jeeps. We really enjoyed our tour in this place. Picture worthy. Recommended to Americans and Japanese and most especially Veterans.

Their pieces are very unique i hope they will do more in terms of the preservation process to make them last for a long time. The in house guide was very helpful and we learned a lot from her. It was an unforgettable memory!

This is a small but interesting museum, with a large personal collection. It is not a full day trip, but worth it when you have some spare time in Puerto Princesa and when you're interested in WO2.

A must, and a great if not the best recap of Palawan History pre WWII and beyond. Support this private venture and visit as it is educational and the only snap shot of Palawans history with a excellent collection in place.
