  • Very nice place to visit with family and I must appreciate the historical department for to keep maintaining well this building and looking after it . 
  • The museum is just awesome. You can find alot of maps from Mughal's period to the present. Recently there is an exhibition of the culture of Pakistan. Place must to be visited for the foreigners. 
  • As said in the title set in a city hardly readable appears a boundary wall in a typical street of familiar urban realities in india, full of debris and trash. Harvested from the surrounding wall stands a building of harmonious forms with decorations of the valle dell indo mother of immense civilisation. That we are talking about seems to be not too understood no visitor since few tourists in the country. You have to look with respect this sign of a past that soon will be erased permanently preferring the modern culture the malls!

  • You will be hard-pressed to find a more beautiful and serene place in Karachi. With wonderfully manicured gardens and a splendidly well preserved building, it's a treat for the eyes. The mansion is very well maintained, and I very much enjoyed looking at the architecture as well as the exhibits inside. And a chance exploration of the back of the building revealed an eccentric collection of statues which seemed a very exciting find to me and my friends! Who knows, maybe they'll still be there when you visit. Do check it out!
  • Art gallery and maps gallery. How maps were drawn a century ago. What was the mechanism. You will get ans by visiting the place.. suitable for a day outing... mohatta palace was build before the partition of Pakistan and India. After partition this was the property of Govt of Pakistan. Later now is managed by Govt of Sindh.
  • Well preserved building housing a museum in the first floor and a rotating exhibition on the second floor. Recommended for anyone interested in the history of Karachi and Pakistan. Gift shop slightly too pricey
  • Mohatta Palace is an architectural gem and has an interesting history. The museum doesn't have a permanent collection but organizes various interesting exhibitions. A must visit destination for tourists and locals alike.
  • A great historical place of which a very few people know about. There is a museum inside the palace which contains exhibits which shows old culture. Building is well maintained and the lawn outside is also beautiful. One person entry ticket: Rs. 10
