5 Amazing Reasons To Visit The Prime Minister’s Museum In Delhi

The Prime Minister’s Museum, or Pradhan Mantri Sangrahalaya, is a tribute to the architects of the largest democracy in the world. Trimurti Bhavan in Central Delhi houses the museum. The museum, which was inaugurated earlier this year, is now open for the general public to explore. The museum takes you on an experiential journey like no other. It is the brainchild of our current Prime Minister, Narendra Modi. Here is why you must visit the museum: 

Reasons To Visit The Prime Minister’s Museum

1. 14 Galleries Dedicated To India’s Prime Ministers

The current Prime Minister of India is the 14th Prime Minister of the country. So, the museum houses 14 galleries dedicated to each prime minister. Each gallery showcases the lives and tenures of the prime ministers with a perfect blend of technology. You can get a glimpse of their early life, political career, and the challenges that they faced and overcame successfully. Except for the current prime minister, all the galleries are ready and open to the general public.

2. Audio Guide

Many times when we visit museums without a guide, we fail to understand some of the exhibits, which leaves the purpose of visiting them incomplete. Well, to tackle this and help people understand the exhibits better, the Prime Minister’s Museum has an audio guide. You can easily opt for a handheld device that syncs with your progress in the museum.

3. State-Of-The-Art Technology

All the visitors will be welcomed into the museum with a striking initial impression. You can see our national emblem in 3D, levitating and rotating in the air. The next installation is where multiple kinetic LED lights form a pattern of our national flag, which beautifully represents freedom, growth, and progress in our country.

The Pradhan Mantri Sangrahalaya, or Prime Minister’s Museum, is the first museum in India to use augmented reality technology. They have various interactive and engagement zones for you to experience India’s past and future. You can visit the time machine zone, which will help you relive India’s past and see it evolve with 360-degree screens. They also have sound and light shows as well as hologram reality installed.

4. Interactive Zones

You can sit down and take pictures with your favourite prime minister, even from the past, in the galleries. They have a whole setup created with sofa chairs where you can sit and take pictures with your favourite minister. Another installation offers you the chance to walk with your favourite prime minister, and the video will be sent to you via email. You can also get a quoted and signed letter from any of the ministers by instructing the handwriting robot.

5. Hop On A 6D Helicopter Ride

The aim of creating this museum is to inspire the younger generation. There is a zone with a 6D helicopter ride where you can experience the future of India. The helicopter ride takes you on a virtual ride as you fly over some iconic future construction sites. The museum houses another zone known as Shatabdi Sankalp. Here you can leave a message about how you envision India in 2047 and share your ideas.
