One will be impressed by the wide garden while walking towards entrance. There are plenty of collection during Moghol period. DG Mr. Fazle Latif improved a lot during his tenure. There are various cultural activity performed at the National museum present days.

Very crowded on holidays and weekends. So best to go perhaps on work day. Collection is educational. Good to take children. But not very stroller friendly..so not suggested to take small children
