“excellent collection-- nicely curated.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2007

The Peshawar museum is an excellent place to visit, starting with its building. It is housed in an old British building, which is architectually interesting. The building is large and airy, quite pleasant.

The museum collection is very interesting. They have many stone statues and in particular boast a full collection of the Buddha's life in stone statues. They also have a rare statue of the emaciated Buddha. In addition they have various stone inscriptions, manuscripts, and cultural items from Pakistan's northern cultures on display.

One can easily spend a few enjoyable hours in this museum.
