A Visit To A Museum

Museum is a place where rare things of past and present are kept. Those who want to have look into past visit museum. Last Friday my friends and I decided to visit a museum because the museum is a place where you can see a collection of rare things and things of historical interest. It is a store house of all wonderful and valuable things. All the things of the past and the present e can see at one place. There is a big museum in Lahore. It is situated near the Town Hall. In front of it runs the Mall Road and opposite to it stands and University Hall with its lofty clock tower. The museum is in a big building which consists of many big halls. It is managed by all officer. We bought tickets to enter the museum. To visit the museum is an education in itself and for this reason it is visited by hundreds of people every day. Travelers from foreign countries also make it a point to visit it because it enables them to peek into the arts and crafts of Pakistan. Women and children also go to the museum in large numbers every day but may be they go to kill their time. Despite it everybody learns something form the museum. When we entered the first hall we found many pictures hung on its walls. These pictures were of old kings saints and statesmen. Some of these were drawn purely from the imagination. All of them however provided a feast of colors for the eye. If we were to take a student of painting with us he would tell us many interesting things about these pictures and paintings. We might have got more information and knowledge but we just had a look and passed on. At one place we found a collection of the articles of everyday use. While at another place we find beautiful articles. Which were meant for purposes of show only. Side by side with lovely hand loom cloth we found costly only Rs. 300 was displayed by the side of another the price of which also run into three figures. We were happy to see all this. We had a good time in that section. In this hall we found the pottery of Multan the wood work of Gujranwala the shawls of Kashimir the carpets of Karachi and cutlery of Wazirabad. There is also a large collection of old daggers swords, shields weapons and ornaments. All the things were in right order. After this we went to a zoological section. It comprises collection of stuffed animals, birds, reptiles, and fishes. Perhaps the most interesting collection was that of statues of Buddha and Buddhisatvas. Some of them were the finest specimens of sculpture and were dug up from under mounds of earth at Taxila or the Swat Valley. The museum also contained a model house a beautiful model of a steam engine a mainiature Persian wheel and many other beautiful things. We enjoyed each and every object. We kept on moving in the museum more than four hours. We collected information without any boredom. We had a look at the past as well as at present. If however one wants to get information without feeling bored one ought to visit a museum. There one reads history, without tears learns to take interest in one's surroundings and begins to appreciate the value of cottage as well as large scale industries of one's own country its culture customs and ways of the life its people lead. In the end it must be said that the museum is worth a visit. A day spent in it is not a day wasted.
