Well worth a half day here. Well written summaries on the exhibits, and fascinating insight into Pakistan's rich cultural history. There are also a few varied sellers of handicrafts, some lovely gardens to explore, and opportunities to catch concerts in this area. Highly recommended.

If you want to see all the cultures in Pakistan under one roof, this is the place. An excellent folk museum inside it is a wonderful place. Occasional exhibitions are really good for buying cultural stuff as well as enjoy food.

I was keen to see the museum but unfrtunately it was closed due to power breakdown the day we went there. The staff was answering ambiguosely that when it will be open. So our desire remained a desire not fulfilled. Though the park & stalls were also worth visiting
