Jawaharlal Nehru Memorial: The Nehru Memorial Museum & Library is a museum and library in New Delhi, which aims to preserve and reconstruct the history of the Indian independence movement. It is located in 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. 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 Nehru, who was the leader of India’s struggle for freedom.
It aims to encourage academic research on modern and contemporary history. In March 2010 it launched a digitization project of its archives, and 500,000 pages had been uploaded on the digital library website.
Nehru Memorial Museum & Library has over the years supported scholars and historians across India. It is also one of the best libraries in Delhi for the social sciences as it has a huge collection on labor related issues in the form of PhD dissertations, reports, books, journals and news papers.
