Looking back those unforgettable heroes of Palawan and America who offered their lives for the Freedom of People in Palawan, Philippines as well. It may serve as an example that we have to do good for the country.

For history buffs, this is the place to go, along with the POW camp nearby. While all parts of WW2 are covered, it mostly honors the deeds of the Filipino resistance movement, which controlled large swaths of countryside across the Philippines during the Japanese occupation. The nicely restored Willys is a joy to behold, which gave birth to the popular... More

This little Museum is awesome! They have an impressive collection of memorabilia from the pacific side of WW2. The staff is very friendly and really enhanced my experience.

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.
