Children’s Museum for Peace and Human Rights

Centers promoting cultural activities are something missing from the karachi scene. And where they are (PACC, Goethe, British Council) are all regarded as training centers more than a cultural center. Which is why i was absolutely delighted to hear about this news.

The ground-breaking ceremony for “Children’s Museum for Peace and Human Rights” was held at Race Course ground by Jordan Prince Rashid Bin Hassan, who also annouced to take up 10% of the project cost. It took 6 years to get approved, and will be built on 1.5 acres of land at old race course.

The museum would be a multi-dimensional educational space for children, which is one of its kinds in the world, is designed to help them understand a wide spectrum of social issues in an interactive and inspiring environment.

The children would be able to visit the exhibition galleries, attend workshops, meetings, social and cultural events.

“The noble art of conversation and interaction has diminished from our society and the industrial society has detached us from our surroundings where people have become ignorant of each other,” said Prince El Hassan Bin Talal, who is also a patron of CMPHR.
