This place is run by hustlers and traders. I left after 2 activities. The first “guide” that I did not request told me exactly halfway through the 15 minute museum tour his fee was $10 USD. I paid him then went to the golf cart (another 500 rupees) and then to the first outdoor venue (another 500) and another “guide” who only wanted to sell me coins. After not taking no for an answer I walked away pissed, got back on the golf cart and went back to my hotel.

Full of artifacts and sculptures of budhas. You'd lost in history after entering the museum. Must visit place for history lovers with teens and children to let them know about the history of ages..

Visit to the museum is a must for history lovers travelling to or around Islamabad.
One can find archeological articrafts excavated from different sites in and around Taxila which include pottery, Jewellery, utensils, Tools, Weapons, Instruments, and of course Statues of Buddha.
One can take a taxi from Islamabad for Rs 500. and it takes an hour to reach there.
Entry ticket to the museum is Rs 20.
One can visit different archeological sites as well which are located within a radius of 15km from the Museum.

Travelled by a small broken Austin taxi which was fun. Pay the man first then fill up with some petrol then off to Taxila!! It is worth going there if you are near there. You can pick up some history from this little museum and it was a good 3 hours travelled to this place. Not much to see around there but if you like history then do try. Can see some Pakistan / India history!!

As everything let's say worth of high value ( gold statues, precious stones etc) has been taken and probably exposed in London
There isn't much to see compare to what initially could have been the case but still interesting to look around
It's located before the ruins

The Taxila Museum, quite near Islamabad city but a bit off the beaten track, is a truly quaint place. It was started in British Colonial times in 1918 and completed in 1928, under the auspices of the famous archaeologist Sir John Marshall and is a specialized museum , dealing with mostly artifacts from the ancient Gandhara Civilization that once flourished in these parts. It is also very easy to visit the museum and then see the nearby archaeological excavated sites like Sirkap, Sirsukh, Jaulian monastery and so on. It is a fascinating place and also has a lovely little garden to stroll in, if you have had enough of antiquities. You have to pay a small entry at the gate.

The Museum is a 45-minute drive from Islamabad. There is no arguing with the richness of history, particularly the Gandhara civilization, presented at the Museum. The Museum precincts in themselves, including a flowery lawn, are quaint and well-kept. Car parking and restrooms are provided for. Tea, snacks and some lunch options are available, in particular at the Tourism Deptt.’s place across the road, which also boasts a minimal gift shop including Taxila guides/maps. Where the Museum falls way short is the actual presentation of the historical treasures. There is a wealth of artefacts ranging from coins to sculptures on display. In most cases, there is a single labeling for dozens of, say utensils, which does not identify them individually and places their period of origin as anywhere between 600 BC to 400 AD!

The museum in Taxila is a must for visitors to the this Historic city. It has large and rich collections of archeological relics , coins, jewellery and the invaluable Ghandhara sculptures. All are made admirably delicate and crafted exquisitely , reflecting on the advancement and richness of the culture.

Well worth a visit and the guides knowledge was very good, the entry fee only 1000 Pakistan Rupees per person. And while your there vist one of the many arcalogicl sites again a 1000 PKR entrance and you would pay the same again for a guide and I would recommend that you use one.
