City treasures: Revamped Lahore Heritage Museum opens next week

LAHORE: The revamped Lahore Heritage Museum will open on October 12, though ambitious ideas for the space have been scaled down from the original plan.

The historic Tollinton Market building on The Mall was converted into the Lahore Heritage Museum in 2006 and used mainly as a single exhibition space. But it has not hosted an exhibition since last year, because of rainwater damage that threatened the items on display.

In its new guise, the museum will be divided into three halls – a permanent gallery, a temporary gallery and a central ‘Hall of Fame’ of Lahoris and officials are currently at work arranging displays, labelling items and fixing lights, said Uzma Usmani, who was put in charge of the museum less than four weeks ago.
