  • Awesomeness level. Must visit. Only 20 rs ticket for Pakistani nationals. 5 dollars for foreigners. But you have to visit it to experience its splendor. In such a low cost, very very informative and interesting collection of animals dating back to prehistoric times. Dinosaur gallery is awesome for children. You can also visit the largest whale ever caught in the world on the top floor. Very well maintained by government officials. Must Be appreciated for this
