The Lok Virsa Heritage Museum is the first museum of ethnology in the country which presents history and living traditions of the people from mainstream and remote regions of the country. An official of the Lok Virsa said the primary purpose of the museum is to educate and edify present and future generations of the country and create a treasure house for the nation more valuable than the vault of any bank in the world. He said the museum has a covered area of 60,000 sq ft. featuring exhibit halls, making it largest museum in the country. He said the National Institute of Folk and Traditional Heritage Lok Virsa works towards creating an awareness of cultural legacy by collecting, documenting, disseminating and projecting folk and traditional heritage. Surveys and documentation of traditional culture is central to the objectives of the institute, he added. “Dedicated individuals undergo the rigorous field work to bring back valuable results to the central archives and production facilities housed at the Lok Virsa complex at Garden Avenue Shakarparian Hills Islamabad,” he said.
