“Gem of a place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2012

I was not expecting it to be this good. The museum presents a comprehensive overview of all PK regions along with continuously running videos showing live action from those regions.

A very good effort in building this up and a must go place. Thumbs up for Lok Virsa..

“Good displays, worth a visit to use spare time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2012

I was not expecting it to be this elaborate. It has a lot of displays which will need at least 2 hours. It has various items like pottery, cultural goods, traditional countryside depictions and goods. It is actually very well organized and quite impressive.
