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).

The Museum’s ethnological exhibits showcase cultural materials from the paraphernalia of a significant ritual like the Pagdiwata of the Tagbanua to ordinary tools, fishing and hunting equipment baskets, woven out of indigenous materials colored with natural dyes that retain their color even under the heat of the sun.
