The focal point of this section is the Manunggul burial jar carbon-dated to the late Neolithic Period. The cover features a ship of the dead with 2 oarsmen. This is the only jar of this period that has been recovered intact therefore it has been declared a National Cultural Treasure. This is also the logo of the Palawan Museum.

Other features of this section include jars from the Sung Dynasty (960-1279) recovered from land and underwater excavations in Southern Palawan and blue and white porcelain from the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644).
