About the Museum
Established in 1972, named after the first prime minister of India,
Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru, Nehru Children's Museum is a major
attraction for children. Today when a child walks into the Museum,
he walks into a world of treasure. It touches the imaginative mind
and encourages him to know more. The exhibits in the museum which
are spread over 4 floors, enable a child to take off to the world of
epics, the world of science and to dream world. Till the mid 2001,
more than 90 million adults and 1 million under-privileged children
have stepped inside this Treasure World. The museum has on display
puppets depicting the Ramayana and the Mahabharata. There are dolls
wearing national costumes from different countries. Miniature
working models of railway crossings and other novelties and an
elementary science gallery.
