Lahore Museum

The present Lahore Museum was constructed under British rule, and retains elements of Mughal architecture in a style termed Indo-Saracenic architecture. Located on Mall Road adjacent to the National College of Arts, Lahore, the Museum has been famously depicted as the Wonder House or Ajaib Ghar in Rudyard Kipling’s novel, Kim. It is home to the country’s largest and oldest collection of historical, cultural and artistic objects. These include coins, Pahari and Mughal paintings and fabrics, Greco-Buddhist sculptures, and modern art. Artists exhibiting at this site include Ayesha Jatoi, Bani Abidi, Masooma Syed and Waqas Khan.
