  • One of Islamabad's must go. The museum displays Pakistan's almost every major cultural image along with some regional countries. There is an old design theater as well, check with the management for upcoming events/dramas there. A small food court at front and a very traditional eating choice (Chapali Kabab) is available at the back. A great place for family n friends.
  • This is one of the best heritage museums in Pakistan. You can walk through the entire depiction of the 5 provinces and AJK too. U can also appreciate the culture of Saudi Arabia, Iran and Turkey here. Lovely family escapade :)
  • Awesome place from historic point of view. Shows the clutures of pakistan and Pakistans historic background in a unique manner .
  • 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.
