Welcome to the world's first Fusion Museum
The Museum of Peace at the Attari-Wagah, Indo-Pak border in Amritsar is a celebration of the common architectural, cultural and culinary heritage of pre-partition Punjab in general and Amritsar-Lahore in particular.

Whenever Punjabis visit either side of the border, there is an unmistakable feeling that a part of the Punjabi psyche and soul resides in the other half. The Museum of Peace is dedicated to the yearning and pining of Punjabis on either side of the border to know about their brethren on the other side, and their immense pride and nostalgia in their common history, culture and traditions.

The visitor's museum experience begins even before he enters the museum building as the museum building itself reflects the great architectural heritage of exquisite design and craftsmanship in brick work which still survives in some of the old buildings of Lahore and Amritsar.

The buildings of the walled cities of Amritsar and Lahore have a defined architectural style which expresses itself in some exquisite craftsmanship in exposed brick work. Unfortunately, much of this common architectural heritage is being lost.

No experience of pre-partition Amritsar and Lahore could be complete without savouring the culinary delights of these two cities and, therefore, it was natural to develop as part of the Museum complex the restaurant, SARHAD-Taste of Amritsar-Lahore. The Museum is ideally located in Amritsar, in village Attari less than two kilometres from the Wagah border and the Attari rail station, which is the last railhead on the Indian side.

The Museum of Peace at the Attari-Wagah border is not merely a repository of objects and artefacts-it is home to the soul of Punjab.
