One of the best historical building preserved well in the heart of Karachi. Best place to host an event and to spend a day. The place also has a small museum and art gallery

When I visited there was an exhibition of antique maps on. I was quite impressed with the knowledge of the guides. The museum is practically deserted, but very well maintained. I would really go to see the beautiful building up close, rather than what is in it.

Good for those who have interest in history. Unfortunately the previous history is not properly highlighted though the building has been named as"Museum". Currently looks like huge display centre for ladies garments.

This place is really nice, I wish more history was available, I went there to see the palace, but its run for exhibitions. I was more interested to know, who lived there and what happened to the place. I think I had the wrong expectations but the palace is self is worth a visit.

Wish they let you explore the top floors of the palace. Nice grounds . Wish we encountered the peacock they have living on the grounds. Some things under construction but overall in good condition. No photography allowed. They take your phone/ camera and return it to you when you ready to leave.
