Nice bit of history! Feb 12, 2011
As its name suggests, Nehru Memorial Museum & Library is composed of two parts. While the library contains books on contemporary history, the museum focuses on the life of the late prime minister, Jawaharlal Nehru and upon the plight of the Indian movement for independence.

The museum is set in rather grand grounds. Outside the museum are three flames which burn for Nehru, Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi respectively.

Inside there are many photographs relating to Nehru’s life. The ones from his childhood are particularly poignant, and it is possible to see letters which his father received from his headmaster at Harrow. From promising student to prime minister, you get to see various snippets of his life. Apart from the awards which he received from various nations, you get to see his bedroom and study too. Although it has a museum feel to it, the closely related items to Nehru on display here give the museum a rather homely quality. There is quite a lot of visuals and information about the Indian independence movement too, and is good if you are keen to gain a lot of information.

A very nice afternoon visit if you are in New Delhi and have an hour or so to spare.

I didn't know much about Nehru before going to India, and this house was helpful in illustrating the books I was reading. It has some great displays on Ghandi and the independence movement--although they suffer from way too much detail, overall they made a strong impression.
