Maulana Azad Museum

The house where Maulana Abul Kalam Azad stayed during his last few years has been refurbished and made into the Azad Memorabilia Museum, which currently contains some of his artefacts including memorabilia such as photographs, awards and gifts received, as well as items of personal use, particularly focusing on his centenary year, that is 1988. It also has a collection of papers and library sources related to the life and work of Maulana Azad, and aims to promote awareness about him. Maulana Azad had presided over the National Congress from 1932 to 1947 and incidentally, it was at this house that the decision to go ahead with the Quit India Movement was taken up, although there are no documents or evidences to support the fact. The museum is still in a rather nascent state and although it currently focuses on Maulana Azad and his lifetime, it is seeking to expand its collection and exhibits and gradually evolve into a museum pertaining to the freedom movement of India. It must be noted that there is currently no other museum in the country dealing solely with India's fight for Independence and it will be the first of its kind.
