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.

  • Found great place for visiting and knowing the cultural costumes of Sindh, available for visitors. Also the constructional work is very inspiring. The palace has very vast park for visiting and sitting on park. Auditorium is also available for arranging the programs. Small zoo can also be visited. Overall I found it great. Everyone must visit the place. The administration is also offering low cost entry to school children for study tours.
  • Its a wonderful place for a taste of a little history. The curators can surely work on getting a little more substance to their tour. For now, private exhibitions are on display but I would love to see a little grandeur the palace has the potential of. There are areas being preserved/restored/rebuilt. Im sure it will be one of the many iconic sights the city of Karachi has to offer.
  • Mohatta Palace takes you back to a royal time. We toured the palace and it was a great historical experience. Exhibits change every so often. Built in the early 1900s. Beautiful architecture. It was originally as a residence but now houses an art gallery and museum. Cameras are not allowed inside the palace only in the grounds. Entrance fees payable, yes a higher rate for foreigners. Rather small museum but highly professional arranged with proper airconditioning and the building itself is an artifact of the museum. There is a small gift shop inside as well. The site is very well maintained.
  • Finding Mohatta Palace Museum was another interesting story. "Gaj, Colours of rainbow" Exhibition 2020 is still showcased inside the Museum, representing the culture of Sindh. How they design their clothes to tell the stories of what is happening in their lives (How many kids do they have? how happy they are with their lives etc, etc) wedding dresses, the royal family's belonging representation. And so many things to learn and explore, now a museum showcasing the cultural heritage and narrating the history of Pakistan via forty-four galleries belonging to its jurisdiction to date. The cell phone is not allowed inside the Museum. You can capture moments only with your eyes. Located in Clifton Karachi, Pakistan. The entry fee is very minimal Tuesday - Sunday 11:00 am - 6:00 pm A must-do thing when you are in Karachi.
  • I really can't believe that the sindh government can keep a place like a Palace . Nice historical place,very neat n clean. Entry ticket is only Rs:30/= for adults,nothing for kids. The wash room was clean, too. They should display the history of the place on a proper space.
