  • Situated in the far corner of Islamabad, it is actually a nice place to visit and to bring young kids. Offers a great insight into the various historical, cultural and folk aspects of Pakistan. Much recommended place for everyone to visit. They offer special discount for students, so dont forget your student cards when visiting. Plus, the place has live music nearby (not on the inside, though).
