I was pleasantly surprised to see such wonderful place.i would recomend it to anyone who is visiting Islamabad or living in islamabad to visit as it is worth a visit

“A must see in Islamabad”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2013

This is a really interesting Museum which contains recreated rooms from different elements of Pakistani History and culture, excellent textiles and some good history. It is a surprise as Pakistan doesn't especially do museum's well but this is a really good place to visit. They often have external events taking place in the courtyard.

Go and enjoy

“dissapointing”

no place to eat or drink , shops has lots of chinees stuff but nothing special from Pakistan. There could be a very nice place with a little touch.

“One of the Best Museums of Pakistan”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2013

Lok Virsa - A one of a kind museum in Pakistan, is definitely worth a visit whoever comes to Islamabad.
The museum showcases the rich cultural heritage of country.
Student tickets available and photography inside the museum is allowed now (wasn't allowed when I visited 2 years earlier)
On the down side exhibits are not adequately introduced and even some items have no introductory tag or something.
Highly recommended to everyone.
