Nehru Museum & Planetarium Tours

Nehru Museum & Planetarium
In the heart of Central Delhi, the Nehru Museum & Planetarium honors the first Indian Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru. The museum is housed in his former home and features a variety of exhibits on Nehru and the Indian Independence Movement, while the Planetarium offers workshops, educational programs, and entertaining astronomy shows.
 
The Basics
This museum is housed in a colonial building that was Nehru's residence for years. The exhibits are the star attractions, but visitors should also check out the building architecture and furnishings. Many of the rooms in the house were left as they were at the time of Nehru’s death. The planetarium is fun for kids and adults, with night-sky shows in Hindi and English. Visit independently or on a museums tour of Delhi.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • The museum is a must-visit for anyone interested in India’s Independence Movement.
  • The planetarium is a great choice for families traveling with kids.
  • Getting around the museum requires going up steps and may prove challenging for wheelchair users.
 
How to Get There
The Nehru Museum is located in the heart of leafy central Delhi, southwest of India Gate and a 20-minute walk south of the Rashtrapati Bhavan (Presidential Palace). Connaught Place is a 10-minute drive or auto rickshaw ride away. It's just under a 20-minute walk to the Udyog Bhawan metro station or the Lok Kalyan Marg station, both of which are on the Yellow Line of the Delhi metro.
 
When to Get There
The museum is open Tuesday to Sunday from 10am to 5pm, and tends to be busiest on weekends. The planetarium here runs shows from 11:30 to 3pm, plus additional shows on Sundays and holidays, but it's a good idea to check specifics ahead of time, as times can change and some shows are only offered in Hindi.
 
The Nehru-Gandhi Family
India's best-known political family, the Nehru-Gandhis, have been actively involved in politics for generations. Jawaharlal Nehru, his daughter Indira Gandhi, and her son Rajiv Gandhi have all served as Prime Minister of India. Rajiv's widow, Italian-born Sonia Gandhi, and her son Rahul are active in the Indian National Congress party to this day.
