The branch museum is in a two-story building that was once the seat of the Provincial Museum and Library of Sulu. It is located in Jolo, the provincial capital of the main island of Sulu province. The Sulu Museum and Library was established through a Sangguniang Panlalawigan resolution in 1981 to house ethnographic materials of Sulu culture and a library. With public funds and private donations, then Provincial Board member, Mrs. Oswalda A. Cabel, developed the museum. Since its inauguration on July 22, 1982, the Sulu Provincial Museum and Library had served domestic and foreign scholars, tourists and local visitors. It was donated and transferred to the National Museum on May 24, 1994. On September 19, 1997, the Jolo Branch Museum was formally opened to the public. –
