“A must visit !”
Review of State Bank Museum

State Bank Museum
Ranked #11 of 79 things to do in Karachi
Attraction details
Reviewed 19 October 2016

The best museum in Karachi, great place, very well taken care of ! Great skilled guides showing you around, giving you their time. Just know that you need to register with ID before going in to the Museum. So call in advance, or be prepared to wait for some time until the museum is doing their paper work. This is a must visit place.

This is a very interesting little museum and if you are lucky you may be able to ask the curator for a tour. If this is not possible, the displays are well marked and explained. This museum is not well known but well worth visiting.

The Building in view is a The State Bank of Pakistan" nearest at Marry Weather Tower and at I.I. Chundrigar Road, Karachi. It is a title of starting Banking in Pakistan and now this Bank has monitoring the all correspondance in Banking within Pakistan and also check and balance of Pakistan's Economic in all the world and it is issued some kind of Pak Euro Bands for accelerate the Economic of Pakistan. I suggest history lovers to visit the precious Building and memories their mind that it is the starter of Banking in Pakistan.

I'm not a numismatic but I thoroughly enjoyed visiting the SBP museum with its incredibly rich coin and art collections. The place is very spacious, clean and well organized. I learned a lot about Pakistan and the importance of the region is world history. The Sadeqain collection, shown in the perfect setting of the tall and majestic first floor halls, is truly beautiful. The museum personnel were extremely welcoming and diligent. We also enjoyed the quick stop by the little boutique at the end of our visit.
