The National History Museum is the first of its kind in the country – featuring state-of-the-art digital exhibits that ensure an immersive and interactive experience for all.
The National History Museum (NHM) is a project of the Government of Punjab created by the Parks and Horticulture Authority (PHA) Lahore and curated by The Citizens Archive of Pakistan (CAP). The Government of Punjab is committed towards advancements in education, preservation of heritage and promotion of culture. NHM is a unique and pioneering initiative set in the locales of the glorious Greater Iqbal Park, a development of PHA, so that you can explore and engage with Pakistan’s diverse history and culture. Together, PHA and CAP aim to make the National History Museum a space of exploration, education and enjoyment, where our ideology and struggle for Independence is preserved and celebrated.
The National History Museum will take you on a journey through the history of Pakistan. It commemorates major events leading up to the 1947 partition, including the Lahore Resolution and Gandhi-Jinnah talks, followed by the journey to Pakistan, which marks the largest migration ever witnessed. This side of the newly formed border of the sub-continent is brought to life; the switch from refugee to citizen, formation of the first Government of Pakistan, and emergence of Pakistan’s own unique identity via its popular culture and sports are all featured in the museum. The heroes and extraordinary women of this country are also celebrated in exhibits dedicated to them.
Digital in nature, the museum is the first of its kind in the country. State-of-the-art technology has been used to ensure an interactive and immersive experience for visitors. Virtual reality, cinema, hologram, and an amphitheater are just some of the exciting features of this museum that ensure a holistic experience for visitors.
