Support the Museum


The Mohatta Palace Museum is entirely dependent on donations from the public, both corporate and individual, for its existence. It has however in the past received support from the Government of Pakistan for specific projects and for conservation of its premises.
The Museum crucially needs your financial support to sustain itself, conserve and restore its existing premises,  create a permanent collection and build a wing to house public facilities such as a caf√©, a bookshop and  public space.

Every contribution, regardless of amount, helps us in two very significant ways: it supports us financially and it is an expression of your interest in the Museum°¶°¶s efforts to serve the wider community. Contributions in cash can be made in the donation box at the Museum or by a cheque made out to the Mohatta Palace Museum. All donations to the Museum, which is a registered charity, are tax exempt. The Museum is currently seeking donations for the following:

  • Contributions towards the Endowment Fund: The Endowment Fund has been set up to generate enough revenue to meet the ongoing expenses of the Museum without using any of the capital. The Fund consists entirely of donations by the public.

  • Collections Fund: The Museum does not currently have a permanent collection and is seeking funds. All objects bought through donations will be individually acknowledged.

  • Special Projects: There are a number of special projects which could be of interest to the larger donor. The Director will be pleased to discuss these projects by appointment.

  • Sponsorship of Exhibitions and Events: We are always seeking support for future exhibitions, lecture events or our educational programme.

  • The Museum is crucially dependent on public support for its continued existence. A key element in our fund raising efforts is the use of our premises for corporate events. Over the past decade the Museum has become the pre-eminent venue for events in Karachi and our roster of clients includes the leading corporate names in the country such as Citibank, Standard Chartered Bank, Shell Pakistan, Engro, Unilever, Telenor. Some restrictions apply such as weddings are not permitted.
