  • Very nice experience. Shows a lot of history and culture of the country. You might want a guide due to the fact that they don't offer English illustration.  more »

  • If you love the culture, history & art, you must visit Lok Virsa Heritage Museum, Islamabad. Note: If you have children with you, better arrange some good joggers for them or comfortable cart. Too much walk in it.
  • Its awesome place to spend time with family and friends. I specially liked the live performance of folk singers outside the museum.
  • Museum inside lokwirsa was amazing. Specially folk dances and art work. Museum was more informative then Pakistan natural museum.
  • Good job done. Lot to learn. Different cultures are depicted classically.
  • This Heritage Museum is a fantastic place. A beautiful riad situated in the Capital, the museum has a wonderful selection of artifacts from various sub continental subcultures. Vibrant rugs, ancient pots, and berber outfits are a few of the museum's highlights. To top it off, this placr has a great greenery. I enthusiastically recommend this museum!
