The Nehru Memorial Museum & Library is a museum and library in New Delhi, India, which aims to preserve and reconstruct the history of the Indian independence movement.The Museum at Teen Murti House has been primarily developed as a personalia museum. Some of the rooms, such as the bedroom, the drawing room and the study have been preserved as they were at the time of Jawaharlal Nehru’s death.
The Museum portrays through visual media the life and work of a heroic individual, who was the leader of India’s struggle for freedom, the architect of modern India, and a passionate champion of world peace. It gives an intimate glimpse of Nehru’s rich and complex personality; the radical nationalist and world statesman; the scholar, idealist and historian; the man of strong family affections, who also bestowed his love on the common people of India. The Museum is not only a place where people come to pay homage to the departed leader; it also tells them of his achievements and highlights the ideals cherished by him.
The Nehru Memorial Museum and Library or ‘NMML’ is situated within the Teen Murti House and homes a specialized Library designed as an advanced research and reference centre. This Library houses a varied collection of books, photographs, journals, materials on microfiche and microfilm and is opened only to researchers and scholars at a very nominal membership fee. It showcases reference materials on social sciences with the main emphasis on modern Indian history and contemporary history too. It also has the biggest repository of newspapers and private paper collections of eminent individuals as well as non-official social and political organisations on microfilm rolls.
