  • You can have a look at the house where Motilal Nehru and his family lived. The ticket to the museum is not really worth the exhibits.  more »
  • Whenever you visit prayagraj, anand bhavan is a must place to visit. It has museum and old memories. It also have Planatorium for children.  more »
  • This should definitely be on your checklist when visiting the city for the historic value it holds. One can see how minimalistic living was in order way back then and sense the clean and clear air around. Kinda similar to the Gandhi Ashram in Gujarat. Good to take children and educate them about the Nehru Family. The photography section on Indira Gandhi was also good, but children might find it boring. Place is well maintained. It would have been a better experience if there was a guide to explain everything around. Good for a one time visit, but definitely a must go-to place.
  • Awesome place to experience the Indian History and heritage building. It's a great example of how rich Nehru was and how he used to live. There's 20₹ tickets for the ground floor where the study room, dining room, bedroom and drawing room. You need to pay 50₹ more to get to see 1st floor which includes only meeting room and one more room which was used as badminton court.
