Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi inaugurated “Pradhanmantri Sanghralaya” in New Delhi on 14th April 2022. The event was attended by Union Minister of Culture, DoNER and Tourism Shri G.K Reddy; Minister of State for Culture and External Affairs, Smt. Meenakshi Lekhi, Minister of State of Culture and Parliamentary Affairs, Shri Arjun Ram Meghwal along with other dignitaries.

The Prime Minister Museum is inaugurated at the time when India is celebrating Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav to celebrate and commemorate 75 years of Independence. “Pradhanmantri Sanghralaya” is an initiative to showcase the story of India post-independence and how each Prime Minister has contributed to the country’s progress since independence. It is a tribute to all the Prime Ministers of India, irrespective of their tenure or ideology.

At the time when India is unleashing its true entrepreneurial potential and preparing itself for Amrit Kaal (India@100), this museum will encourage the younger generation by exhibiting the vision, challenges, leadership qualities, and achievements of all our Prime Ministers.

“Pradhanmantri Sanghralaya” has two blocks inspired by the celebratory journey of India after its Independence. Spanned over an area of 15,600 square meters, the core design of the museum represents the progressive story of rising India. The design of the museum incorporates sustainable conservation practices. No trees were felled or affected for the construction of this iconic museum.

The museum also has a unique logo to its name which represents the hands of the people of India holding Dharma Chakra which showcases India’s unity and democracy as a nation. The museum reflects cutting-edge technology-based interfaces to engage its audience and make the experience more interactive.

Holograms, interactive kiosks, digital kinetic sculptures, and interactive screens are some technology tools that are being installed in the museum to also encourage “Digital India” among the youth.

There are 43 galleries in “Pradhanmantri Sanghralaya” which exhibit the story of our Prime Ministers and how they ensured the progress of the country despite facing various challenges during their respective tenures. Click here to know more. The official website can be found here.
