Pashtun Cultural Museum
A magnificent representation of the culture heritage and the diversity of the Pashtoons is depicted by the Cultural Museum and Art Gallery. A Proposal was presented to the Higher Education Commission, Islamabad (HEC) in 2006 and funding of Rs 23 Million has been provided by the HEC for the completion of the said project.
The credit of the establishment of the Pashtoon Cultural Museum goes to the Ex.Director Pashto Academy Prof. Dr. Salma Shaheen. Now this Museum presents the whole region of the Pashtoons including local household, items, dresses, handicrafts, musical instruments, weapons, which throw light on the colourful diversity of the life styles of the various Pashtoons tribes. Now, we wish to have a systematic process for the bright future of the museum so that items/Antiques may either be purchased or donated by the people around KhyberPakhtunKhwa.
Following is a 6-part documentary on various functions and purpose of the establishment of the museum.
