  • It was a complete disappointment. There was nothing about Lahore. Thing are not arranged to a theme. Most of the stuff was from 20th century.
  • Lahore Museum is enriched with beautiful collections from the history of mankind. Every time i visit here i must imoressed by the preserved monuments. So Lahore Museume is very informative and historical place.
  • Went there 10 years ago Nice place for students
  • Rare antique collection, its all fascinating for lovers of history, if you ever visit Lahore, never miss this place.
  • A great place to visit. Art lovers, monument lovers, specifically Budha lovers, must visit. A huge collection of heritage with an elegant vintage look
