Coming Soon! World’s Largest Museum In Delhi Showcasing 5000 Years Of History

In the heart of India’s capital, New Delhi, the Yuge Yugeen Bharat National Museum is poised to become a monumental testament to the country’s rich history and cultural heritage. Through eight thematic segments, this prestigious institution—which is billed as the largest museum in the world—will tell the enthralling tale of India, spanning an amazing 5,000 years. The eagerly anticipated museum is housed in the famous North and South blocks, taking up 1.17 lakh square metres of space and featuring 950 rooms distributed over a basement and three storeys.

Yuge Yugeen Bharat National Museum Will Be The World’s Largest Museum

Since this ambitious project promises to give visitors an immersive experience unlike any other, there is a great deal of excitement and anticipation surrounding it. The museum’s grand opening was set in motion by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on May 18 during the celebrations for International Museum Day. It involved a virtual tour that gave visitors a sneak peek at the treasures that lay in wait. 

The virtual tour offered a glimpse into the gardens and galleries. It featured ancient Indian knowledge from the Vedas, Upanishads, and other texts, as well as ancient town-planning techniques. Recently, PM Modi inaugurated the IECC complex, now known as Bharat Mandapam. It was developed at an astounding cost of roughly ₹2,700 crore and has a sprawling campus area of 123 acres. He also revealed the Yuge Yugeen Bharat National Museum on this historic occasion.

This Museum Will Celebrate Indian History Like Never Before

The thematic sections of the museum will cover various important eras in Indian history, from prehistoric times to the mediaeval era, from the Dutch, British, and other colonial powers to India’s glorious freedom struggle, culminating in the post-1947 era with a vision for the future. The museum will offer a thorough and insightful understanding of India’s evolution throughout the ages. Every segment of this museum will be meticulously designed. The National Museum’s priceless ancient artefacts and collections will be transferred to the North and South Block buildings.

Meenakshi Lekhi, the Union Minister of State for Culture, emphasised how the current National Museum building fits into Kartavya Path, formerly known as Rajpath. The National Museum will add to the cultural and historical significance of this ceremonial axis, giving this famous route new meaning. With its expansive vision, the Yuge Yugeen Bharat National Museum is prepared to enthral the world with its extraordinary account of India’s journey through the ages. 

As the museum gets ready to open, it promises to be a guiding light for learning, inspiring future generations and preserving India’s rich heritage for all time.
