The museum will be replete with a technologically-advanced display of the lives and contributions of all the prime ministers of the country, starting with the first prime minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, and the gifts he received from worldwide, displayed for the first time.

The museum’s goal is to raise awareness about all the prime ministers and their contributions to public life, regardless of their ideologies, thinking, or tenure.

The sangrahalaya is a seamless blend of the old and the new and includes the erstwhile Nehru Museum building, designated as Block I, which now has a completely updated, technologically-advanced display on the life and contributions of Jawaharlal Nehru. A number of gifts received by him from all over the world but not exhibited so far have been put on display in the renovated Block I, “an official said.

The museum silently tells the story of how to get through freedom. It unveils the country’s freedom struggle and the making of the constitution. The museum shows how all the prime ministers of the country dedicated their lives to the future of the nation, despite all the numerous challenges, and left no stone unturned for the progress of the country.

The total area of the museum is about 10,491 square metres. The logo of the building represents the hands of the people of India holding the “chakra”, symbolising the nation and democracy.

Information collected from different sources

Information was collected through institutions such as Doordarshan, Film Division, Sansad TV, Ministry of Defence, media houses (Indian and foreign), print media, foreign news agencies, the “Toshakhana” of the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) etc. The families of the former prime ministers were also contacted for valuable information about them.

Appropriate use of archives (collected works and other literary works, important correspondences), personal items, gifts and memorabilia (felicitations, honours, medals conferred, commemorative stamps, coins etc.), speeches of the prime ministers, anecdotal representation of their ideologies and different aspects of their lives have been reflected in a thematic format.
