The Prime Ministers’ Museum or the Pradhanmantri Sangrahalaya was inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on 14th April 2022. Located next to the Nehru Memorial Museum and Library (NMML) on Teen Murti Marg, the museum pays tribute to all the Prime Ministers of India since Independence. Besides memorabilia, there is an audio and visual tour of speeches from the Red Fort and a virtual helicopter ride.
The Estate was the home of former Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru and thus a perfect place to establish the museum. Building I of the museum houses the Toshakhana Zone which displays the treasures gifted to Nehru, Manmohan Singh, Vajpayee, Narendra Modi etc. Besides, there are different zones, areas and rooms dedicated to various aspects of history, such as India at Independence- the British Legacy that through room project mapping displays the agriculture and economy of India during the British era. The Making of the Constitution room displays the debates and documents made by the Constituent Assembly. Democratic India showcases the understanding of the parliament and democracy. The India – China War room has photographs and history of the war. The Nehru Gallery, his study room, sitting room, bedroom are also open for visitation.
Building II has a Parichay room that introduces the Prime Ministers of India. The zones for each Indian Prime Minister display their achievements, speeches, etc. Besides, the Bhavishya ki Jhalkiya takes the visitors on a virtual helicopter ride exploring what the future holds for the country, whereas, the Time Machine room virtually displays the changes that took place over the years in India. Using Augmented Reality one can take a selfie with the Prime Minister or the Handwriting Robot can write your message signed by the Prime Minister that you can take home. All this and more make the Prime Ministers’ Museum a great place to understand the past, present and future of India through the lens of prominent political figures.
