The National Museum Sulu is a two-story building that was once the  Provincial Museum and Library of Sulu. It is located in Jolo, the province’s capital.

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 has served domestic and foreign scholars, tourists and local visitors. It was donated and transferred to the National Museum of the Philippines on May 24, 1994. On September 19, 1997, the then Jolo Branch Museum was opened to the public.
