The Pakistan Air Force (PAF) is essential to Pakistan's security. The PAF Museum is dedicated to honoring recent and historical warriors who sacrificed their lives for the country. PAF Museum in Karachi is an Air Force museum and park located next to the Karsaz Interchange on Shahra-e-Faisal in Karachi, Sindh, Pakistan. The PAF Museum, close to PAF Base Faisal, opened its doors in 1997 to the general public. The PAF Museum is one of the must-see museums in Karachi, along with the Pakistan Maritime Museum in Karsaz.

The museum also houses a number of airplanes, some of which were taken prisoner by the enemy and others decommissioned. Most of these fighter aircraft are exhibited in the park's open-air museum, but a few are preserved within the hangar that houses the museum's Archives Gallery. There are about 30 aircraft on show here, and additional displays are often added to keep the museum updated. The inside galleries are also decorated with old photos and paintings that show the achievements of the Pakistan Air Force. The Archives Gallery, which is housed in a hangar on the property, is the most well-known since it houses the Viking Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah's airplane. Check out the six other sub-galleries in the Archives Gallery.
