This museum was a great overview of all the regions and cultures of Pakistan. There is a ton here though so I was extremely lucky to have someone along that had a lot of knowledge of the cultures and really expanded on the exhibits.

I have been to the museum twice now and it never fails to impress me. There are few places like this in Pakistan which impart knowledge to children while being interesting at the same time. Overseas Pakistanis who want their kids to learn about their culture and heritage must take them to this museum

Pakistan is a country of diversity. It has different ethnic groups living in different set of environment speaking different languages and have different cultures. If you want to have a glimpse of rich and diverse cultural heritage of Pakistan at one place, Lok Virsa (Urdu name for the words 'Traditional Heritage') is the place to be.

A collection of heritages from all five provinces of Pakistan. Good place for shopping local handicrafts and trying different food flavors. Ideal time is to visit in evening looks even better with lights on.
