Tips for Visiting
The Partition Museum, situated in Old Delhi just 10 minutes from Chandni Chowk, is a remarkable People’s Museum created through donations and personal stories. If you are interested in history, we recommend setting aside an hour to explore this fascinating museum. Not far from the museum, within a short walking distance, you’ll find the UNESCO World Heritage site of Red Fort and the vibrant Chandni Chowk market, a shopper’s paradise.
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.
