The Rashtrapati Bhavan Museum is a one-of-its-kind museum that sets the narrative of India’s history and cultural landscape, providing an impressive opportunity to the young minds of India to know their roots. This heritage walk inside the museum includes the display of memorabilia from the freedom struggle, situated on the ground floor. In this section, we will come across sculptures of important architects, and a special gallery and montage displays through interactive multi-media techniques which are the key highlights of the ground floor. We will listen to stories about the last viceroy of India, and how India got its freedom as the clock struck midnight on 14th August 1947.

A walk through the upper basement of the museum will help us understand the setup of the Rashtrapati Bhavan and the significance of the different gifts offered by various countries to the presidents of India. Hear stories about our Presidents and their valuable contributions to the country’s heritage.

 

Also on display are various tableaus depicting the bloody rampage at Jallianwala Bagh, the Swadeshi movement, and the Dandi March. As we walk around, we shall listen to stories about these movements and how they made an impact on India’s struggle to attain freedom.

 

We will make our final visit to the multimedia room where the participants will be introduced to the ideologies of Gandhi in 3D.
