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. Housed within the Teen Murti House complex, it is an autonomous institution under the Indian Ministry of Culture, and was founded in 1964 after the death of India's first prime minister, Jawaharlal Nehru. It aims to foster academic research on modern and contemporary history. Today, the Nehru Memorial Library is the world’s leading resource centre on India’s first prime minister and its archives contain the bulk of Mahatma Gandhi's writings apart from private papers of C. Rajagopalachari, B. C. Roy, Jayaprakash Narayan, Charan Singh, Sarojini Naidu and Rajkumari Amrit Kaur. In March 2010 it launched a digitization project of its archives, under which by June 2011, 867,000 pages of manuscripts and 29,807 photographs were scanned and 500,000 pages uploaded on the digital library website. Amongst noted publications of the NMML are Selected Works of Jawaharlal Nehru, Man of Destiny by Ruskin Bond, Nehru Anthology and Nehru Anthology.

  • I had visited the memorial only on a Saturday afternoon. Its a must go for modern Indian history enthusiasts. The estate itself isn't too large, but the residence is commanding. The rooms, his writings, his library are all maintained from the time. I suggest 2 hours to do justice. Also, there can be school tours going on. So just stay clear of the crowd! Nearest metro station by walking distance : Lok Kalyan Marg (Yellow Line) 1.8km
