  • A quite maintained place but for our history restoration there more can be done. The place was neat and clean from inside, from outside we can build path ways. Hope we have these in near future.
  • Nice historical collection of Ganhara art, different galleries like Pakistan movement of independence, sikh culture and many more.
  • Good place to visit and see the historic stuff but it was quiet hot inside the building. Mobiles are not allowed to take inside
  • These place recall great history of ppl of indopak region
  • Great place to visit. Ticket doesn't cost much and there is a student discount too. Art gallery is amazing.
