 About Nehru Museum & Planetarium

Nehru Museum is situated on the Teen Murti Marg near Chanakyapuri in the New Delhi. This museum was once the official residence of the Commander-in-Chief of the British forces, which was converted in to the official residence of the first Indian Prime Minister of India, Jawaharlal Nehru. After the sad demise of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, it was converted into a museum and a library, dedicated to Panditji. It exhibits the photographs and newspaper clippings, which give a fascinating insight into the history of the independence movement. The museum therefore revolves around the life and works of Nehru, especially those objects relating to the freedom struggle.

Jawahar Jyoti is an endless flame that keeps burning day and night in memory of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. The front lawn of the museum houses a monumental granite rock inscribed with short extracts from the destiny speech delivered by Nehru in the midnight session of the Indian Constituent Assembly. The Nehru library boasts of books on religion, culture, sociology, economics, politics and development in India. Also included in the collection are pamphlets, newspapers, periodicals, research material, rare journals, etc. There is also an admirable collection of manuscripts, consisting of institutional records and papers and correspondence of individuals, both in the museum as well as the library. On the formal grounds of the Teen Murti House is situated the Nehru Planetarium. Here, you will get to know about the Space Program of India, the Universe and even the Capsule that took Rakesh Sharma to space. Also, astronomy shows are daily organized at this planetarium, with special programs for school children.
