Nehru Memorial Museum
Nehru Memorial Museum is located in one of the most imposing and stately buildings of Lutyen’s New Delhi, Teen Murti Bhavan on Teen Murti Road. Originally the official home of the British commander-in-chief of the Indian army, this graceful colonial building became the residence of India’s first Prime Minister and national leader, Jawaharlal Nehru, who lived here for sixteen years.
Depicting various facets of life of the great statesman, the memorial has a fine collection of rare photographs from his family album, his personal letters and newspaper clippings providing detailed information on National Movement of India. The visitors can view Nehru’s bedroom, study room and drawing room as he left them through large glasses. These spacious teak-paneled rooms with high ceilings are laid with some very personal belongings of the able leader. There are also on display his stylish clothes of summer and winter reflecting his elegant taste apart from gifts, treasured curios, presents and precious awards he received during his lifetime from various countries and organizations.
An eternal flame burns representing the values and foresightedness of Nehruji just near the beautiful flower garden at the back of the house. Besides it, there is also a rock carved out with thankful words of the dynamic person for his countrymen.
Teen Murti House also has a rich library, Nehru Memorial Library, which is an excellent research center for Indian History. The library has the provision to give temporary membership to interested persons
