Tips for Visiting
Town Hall, Amritsar is located at the start of the Heritage Plaza, a 5-7 minute walk from the Golden Temple and Jallianwala Bagh. It is a People’s Museum and is built through their donations and stories. When visiting, it is ideal to schedule at least an hour for the Partition Museum, especially if you are interested in history! Brother’s Dhaba, a popular local eating joint, is located right opposite the Museum. Hall Bazar is also down the road, the ideal marketplace to shop for traditional Phulkari embroidered cloth and Punjabi Juttis.
School children from all over the country have visited the Museum to learn about the Partition, which resulted in the largest migration in history. The Museum’s multi-media exhibits help students understand history in a more interactive manner and connect with the stories of the people who lived through it. The students take back with them a greater understanding of the nation they belong to and the people they are a part of.
We encourage schools to bring students of all age groups to the Partition Museum, to enable them to learn beyond what textbooks can teach, and sensitize them to the sufferings of the people as well as experience the hope and positivity the Museum strives to bring forth.
