This museum was established by Lok Virsa to protect the traditional culture, crafts and living folk of Pakistan. It shows the cultural heritage of people of Pakistani. It shows the life style of different people of Pakistan, there are different pictures, statues, pottery, textile and music and also have a large place for exhibition of jewelry, metalwork, ivory, bone work, embroidered costumes, woodwork, block printing and also there is display of some good art work of other cultures. Lok Virsa museum is one of the Pakistan’s finest cultural museums.
The promotion and maintenance of traditional culture is very critical in securing the nation’s identity. Pakistan is in its transitional stage and is a developing country. It comes across many challenges while safeguarding its cultural heritage and it is all about meeting the requirement of a nation in this revolutionize industrial world. With the advancement in technology and globalization arts reach to industrial level rather than individual level. Country like Pakistan is at the consumer end so large part of the industrial art are exported so keeping in mind this Lok Virsa has struggled hard for the appreciation and strengthening of the local art forms.
It will not be wrong to said that Lok Virsa is not a common exhibition center or Museum which place folk culture into display and also very sincere for the survival of this wonderful culture fetching the beauty in limelight. The folk heritage museum is very important in Pakistan culture and also plays important role in promoting and also preserving the beautiful art of Pakistan.
