Upon completion of this project, people will be able to listen to revolutionary tales of the city through a light and sound show. Famous historic and cultural stories from the city like Dhruva Tila, Brahmavarta Ghat and others will be narrated through a unique combination of light and sounds here. According to officials, these shows will be scheduled on special occasions and festivals. Different light and sound shows will be organised at different timings in this museum.
The project is being developed at a cost of ₹6.5 crores and is aimed at giving night tourism a boost. Once ready, the Gandhi Bhawan will act as a new attraction in the city for locals and tourists alike. The light and sound show will also attract the children, hence making it a must-visit for all!
