Before entering the museum I though I would find lot of old coins, currency notes etc in this museum. Well, these things were there but the most pleasant surprise was the art gallery that contained a very impressive collection of Sadiqain paintings, specially the huge murals. The collection also included the last sketch that Sadiqain drew when he was on the death bed.
Though Sadiqain's works dominates the museums, there are sketches depicting Karachi culture as well as calligraphy by Gulgee.
The collection of coins, currency notes and stamps is also worth looking at.
It's not a huge museum per se but contains lot of valuable and historic things. Worth a visit.

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.
