  • The museum is a wonderful place to visit especially for people who are fond of history. It is designed cleverly so that you see all the galleries and not get lost. The visiting timings of the museum are 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. There a few flaws about the museum as it is being renewed; there is no proper entrance gate, the fans and lightings are not working in some galleries, and a number of galleries are closed for renovation. But the visit is worthwhile.
  • Nicely preserved artifacts. Although, this place could use some cleanship and touchups
  • Not as good as Armed froces museums. NeEDS Gov attentions
  • Great place to know about all civilization in our world and pakistan
  • Its nice museum
