Mohatta Palace Museum, Karachi

4.5
#2 of 34 in Museums in Pakistan
Appreciate the luxurious architecture of Mohatta Palace Museum, acquaint yourself with the country’s culture, and pore through some fascinating exhibitions. Devoted to the arts of Pakistan, the exterior of the museum features stonework depicting flowers, peacocks, and other adornments. The mansion was built by the Mohatta family in the 1920s as a summer house, and remains notable for its beautiful gardens, which surround the main palace building, which consists of a basement, ground floor, and first floor. Long corridors, terraces, and double doors add to the palace's overall luxurious style.

  • Since the building is historical, it's architecture is quite beautiful to look at. There are beautiful lawns here. The Palace is typically a museum and has art/culture exhibits of the work of different artists on display during the year. A round of the Palace takes 1-1.5 hours. The museum guides are very helpful. Photography inside the museum is not allowed. Would recommend to those with an interest in art, architecture and history. Can go with family here, a useless trip for children below 5-7 years.
  • I really enjoyed my short trip here and the current exhibition on various maps of Pakistan and the subcontinent. It's a different feel to other places in Karachi and the peacocks roaming the grounds around the building give it an eccentric touch. Apparently theirs a haunted tree near the back of the building and various parts of the building are haunted, but I can't claim to having to need to call the Ghostbusters/local peer Sahib.
  • This is one amazing place to visit if you want to explore the cultural and architectural heritage of Pakistan. I would highly recommend that students,youngsters,tourists visiting Karachi should visit Mohatta Palace for sure. Bring along a camera with you to do some amazing photography.
  • As far as historical significance is concerned it is beautiful and must visit place.Nothing is unusual to see inside the palace however on and off you will find exhibitions related to the Arts and handicrafts which is good part. Bad part is photography is not allowed inside and I was very disappointed today because of this.No issue of parking in normal days I guess. Souvienier shop is also an additional attraction inside. No issue of entrance as well.
  • Very nice and historical place. This place has a museum but have no relevance with the history of the place. A souvenir shop is also available inside from where you can buy various artistic stuff.
