This museum was once the secretariat of the government of Pakistan just after the independence. And thus place has very attractive history for the explorers. You will find organized items and preserved items placed in the part of museum.

The ambiance can not be described in words. One of the most beautiful building of Karachi and well preserved. Museum has not so many things but usually exhibitions are held and one can visit during the day time. Companies occasionally arrange concerts and ghazal nights in the evening and at that time building looks awesome.
