I went to the museum with some friends today and everyone had a good time. The elephant bones and huge alligator were some of my favorites. I would definitely recommend stopping by there if you are in the area.

A very nice place especially for kids who are at school as they get knowledge from here. They also enjoy the Natural History which you do not get anywhere in Pakistan like this.
