Yesterday we decided to take our children to the Natural History Museum.
The Museum has four divisions namely Botanical Sciences, Earth Sciences, Zoological Sciences and Public Services. The first three divisions are engaged in the collection, preservation, identification and research activities pertaining to plants, fossils & minerals and animals resources of Pakistan respectively, while the latter is responsible for education and popularization of the natural history through various displays, exhibits and dioramas.
The place is good for basic knowledge for children but a lot still needs to be done to make it more technologically advanced. Children don’t usually find things in glass cases exciting. I don’t know how such museums are run in other countries but I feel we have very diverse and magnificent biodiversity but the museum fell short of my expectations.
But here are a few pictures from our trip. I hope you enjoy them.
All pictures are from my own camera.
