The Pakistan Museum Of Natural History Is Worth Visit

Museum of Natural History

In the Shakarparian Hills, the Pakistan Museum of Natural History is located within the Shakarparian National Park. Garden Avenue is accessible after passing through the Shakarparian Interchange. It is on the Islamabad Expressway/Faisal Avenue. Quite the EASY access!

Animals, birds, and plants in their natural habitats are on show in the gallery. The biodiversity of Pakistan is well-represented in this display. Furthermore, it includes species from both the northern alpine peaks and the southern beaches.


The biodiversity of Pakistan is well-represented in the museum of natural history, which includes species from both the northern alpine peaks and the southern beaches. There is also a 3-D diorama of the Khewra Salt Mines. Likewise, it persuades the residents and visitors alike to visit the actual tourist attraction in Punjab.

This gallery is a jeweler’s paradise since it showcases all of the gems discovered naturally in Pakistan.  All of the above, from all of the provinces. Both the raw and polished forms of the jewels are on exhibit. This gallery will appeal to both historians and children since it features fossils from now-extinct animals discovered in Pakistan. Some of the fossils date back over 650 million years.


The species is a fish-eating crocodile that may be found in Pakistan’s northern Indus River. The International Union for Conservation of Nature has classified this species as Critically Endangered because of its light or dark olive skin and long, narrow jaws that are designed to capture fish.


In Pakistan, there are over 650 bird species, and you can see models of them in this fascinating diorama. From the tiniest bird, the hummingbird, to the Chukar Partridge, Pakistan’s national bird, to the Peregrine Falcon, the Pakistani Air Force’s insignia, you’ll be able to view them all in their natural habitats.


At the entryway, visitors are greeted by a massive blue whale skeleton. The species is found in all seas and is one of the biggest creatures on the planet. It is a threatened species because its number is quickly dwindling.


A Lotus Pond with a flourishing lotus population may be seen inside the museum’s walled grounds. A lotus is a floating plant that grows in water that is still. With its lovely pink or white blooms, it may offer a lot of charm to any garden.

There’s also a fish pond on the property with around 250 different fish species. The fish splashing and swimming in the water will delight young children. However, don’t allow them to come too near and disturb the joyful animals.


It is a rare species, and its population is rapidly declining. This specimen, known as a Whale Shark because of its size and eating habits, is over 40 feet long and was 50 years old. The whale shark was found in Karachi in 2012. It was found dead.

On that note, let’s take a look at how the art has been taken to a whole NEW LEVEL as Australian and Pakistani culture promoted through bus art
