India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently inaugurated a state-of-the-art museum dedicated to former Prime Ministers of the country, featuring exciting tech, such as virtual reality, augmented reality, holograms, and more.
Called the ‘Pradhan Mantri Sangrahalaya,’ the museum is housed at the Teen Murti Complex in the country’s capital, Delhi. It highlights the contributions of the past fourteen Prime Ministers who have served the country since it gained independence.
The museum highlights their political career and contribution to the country. It also incorporates elements of the country’s history, such as the freedom struggle. It commemorated 75 years of India’s independence under the ‘Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav’ celebrations.
Countless photos of the museum have made their way online, showcasing the excellent infrastructure and pioneering technology used to depict the lives, speeches, personal items, and memorabilia belonging to the former PMs.
Irrespective of the political ideologies of the Prime Ministers, their contributions have been highlighted without any prejudice. The core objective of the museum is to sensitize and educate the younger generation about the leadership, vision, and achievements of the country’s leaders.
The museum features holograms, virtual reality, augmented reality, multi-touch, multimedia, interactive kiosks, computerized kinetic sculptures, smartphone applications, and interactive screens to provide a never-seen-before experience to the visitors.
The building’s overall design draws inspiration from the story of rising India, propelled on the path of progress by its leaders. It also incorporates several sustainable and energy conservation features.
The museum’s logo represents the hands of the people of the country holding the Chakra, symbolizing the nation and democracy.
“This museum is a great inspiration for us at a time when we are celebrating 75 years of independence. I can also see families of former PMs today. This event is graced by their presence,” said PM Modi at the museum’s inauguration.
