  • I visit Lok Virsa Museum round about 1 year before, very interesting and historical place, i enjoy a lot with my friends and also know about how life was passed in past.  more »
  • This museum is surrounded by good artisans, scenes of rural and urban life, wedding customs and much more. But life in the Bronze Age is also well visualized. Some exhibits, such as carved wooden doors, also testify to the historical artistry in this country. Exhibited theatre puppets and a puppet theatre stage especially delight children.

  • Again a great place to take family and friends. Even locals go there to enjoy the cultures of all regions gathered in one place. Not just any place but the best places to visit. My family and friends who visit ALWAYS enjoy and appreciate the beauty that Pakistan has to offer and Lok Virsa is a great destination.
  • Personally, I've visited this place numerous times and still I prefer to take my GUESTS to this place for outing... it's very good place for youngsters as it provides an opportunity to explore our culture... here you can feel the taste of all regions of our beloved country and other countries of Asia like China, Iran, Tajikistan etc. STRONGLY RECOMMENDED...
