A great museum, so nice, clean and quiet. You will be asked to take your shoes off midway through it. Just make sure you have socks on as the place can be a bit dusty.

Spread upon acres and acres of land the huge Mazar-e-Quaid is a must place for any Pakistani. Well non Pakistanis can also visit it :-) There's ample parking space so no need to worry about that. You take a walk to the Mazar (Mausoleum) after parking your car. There's lots of taxi/rickshaws so getting there or coming back should not... More

The monument is impressive in its simplicity and majesty. Located on the highest hill in Karachi, its gardens are well tended, and the monument and its many water features lovingly restored. The museum in the basement is well worth a visit. There is an air of veneration and solemnity befitting for the great Quaid-e-Azam.

Mazar e Quaid is no doubt is a beautiful place, but some stupid people turned this place something else. Though it needs more maintenance and more security cameras in many areas..but on the whole its a great place to spend a couple of hours...getting to Mazar e Quaid sometimes gets very hard cause of the traffic jams.
