Pictures with the first prime minister, Liaquat Ali Khan, and Jinnah addressing freedom rallies were also displayed for visitors. Poetry related to the freedom struggle were placed and, a picture of Wazir Mansion, the place where Mohammad Ali Jinnah, was born was present.

At the end of the session, students were distributed prizes for participation.
