“Simply fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2014 via mobile

Been there quite a few times with family and alone as I am a history buff. My personal favorite would be the Indus Valley portion. The Ghandara civilization portion is also superb. Mughal miniatures and contemporary Pakistani artists exhibition is a must see. I would highly recommended any history buff or anyone visiting Lahore to visit the museum. Entry fee is almost free. Highly underfunded. Museum curator once told me that all the stuff is lying in the basement out of public view...really makes me curious??
However so so worth it. Will visit it again after writing this!

“Excellent, Excellent Museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

Our visit to this museum was a very pleasant surprise. The calibre of the displays was on at an international standard. The displays were well done with well written descriptions beside all of the artifacts.

This was an interesting journey into South Asia's past and well worth the visit. It is a visit I highly recommend to tourists and locals alike.

“Beautiful building, amazing exhibits, could do with a bit more signage”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2014

We visited march 2014. On arrival,you are very impressed by the scale of the building. The exterior alone is worth the trip.

Inside, though a little gloomy, the very first'general' gallery takes your breath away with the wide range of exhibits. Work your way round room after room of exquisite art and items from all over the world. Highlights for me included a Qur'an over a thousand years old, and wonderfully made necklaces from the neolithic era, maybe 9000 years old.

Must see. Could maybe do with a bit more signage in Urdu and English, but no complaints.
