The Indian freedom struggle was perhaps one of the biggest freedom struggle in modern history. It is only right that each one of the freedom fighters gets recognition for their service to the country. A new museum that has opened in Red Fort recently aims to pay homage to the unsung freedom fighters of our country.

Azadi ke Diwane museum at Red Fort

Azadi ke Diwaane museum was opened up in Red Fort with the help of ASI (archaeological survey of India) and aims to spread awareness about the fallen heroes to whom we owe our freedom and democracy.

The ASI authorities have tried their best to give a name and a face to the forgotten heroes and trace their lineage back to the olden eras. With this, the goal is to motivate Indians from all walks of life and to incite nationalistic feelings.

The museum for the revolutionaries will go under the name- ‘Azaadi Ke Diwaane’ and will highlight almost every action towards the freedom struggle that has gone unnoticed. They aim to bring to light the selfless warriors who put the nation before family and everything else.

Archaeological Museum at Red Fort

Some salient features of the museum are that it is a completely digitised and interactive museum and has state-of-the art facilities. It is an informative and educational exhibition, which allows users to engage with the exhibits through some high tech methods.

In order to increase the appeal and the footfall of the museums, the Union culture ministry has decided to keep the Red Fort open till 9:00 PM. Not only is this beneficial for visitors who are present at the fort, but will also increase the number of visitors at any given day. As part of the same move, Purana Quila will also undergo revised timings soon.

In the past few months, the Red Fort has opened some new museums, all of which hold great historical significance and give a background to the history of India.
