Partition Museum- Stories in Everyday Objects

When the subcontinent was Partitioned in 1947, millions of people on both sides of the border were forced to migrate, often at a moment’s notice. In this walk, we’ll focus on objects carried by people across the borders to tell the stories of their pre-Partition lives, their journeys during the Partition, and the manner in which they rebuilt their lives, as well as their thoughts on the land, people and friendships left behind.

 

This guided tour is free.
