Azadi Ke Diwane museum opens at Red Fort to pay homage to unsung fallen heroes

Azadi Ke Diwane museum was recently inaugurated at Delhi’s Red Fort to pay homage to the unsung heroes, who laid down their lives during the freedom struggle for the sake of their country and countrymen. This is, in fact, the fifth in a series of recently inaugurated museums that are dedicated to our fallen heroes; the others being the Yaad-e-Jallian museum, Subhash Chandra Bose and INA museum, the Museum on 1857 and the Drishyakala.

Azadi Ke Diwane is a two-storied museum and has been divided into 22 zones. Further, there are four audiovisuals, 150 panels, the Andaman Jail experience, archival data, touch-screen kiosks, panels for child and women martyrs, and digital tribute kiosks. Here, you will also get to see a tribute room with digital candles.

The chief historian for the museum said that this establishment is for paying homage for all those fallen heroes, whose names don’t find a mention in the history books, and those who were sent to the Andaman Jail. Also, the audio-visuals, films and commentaries will bring you closer to their struggle stories.
