New Delhi: Two new experiential museums at Red Fort, planned by Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) as homage to the sacrifices made by Indians, are likely to be inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi ahead of the Republic Day celebrations.

The museum is going to be around 12,000 sq ft on the ground floor and 8,000 sq ft on the first floor, making it one of the largest museums in India. 

It will contain ancient Public Records, Private Papers, Photographs, Paintings, Sketches, Illustrations, Contemporary Newspapers reports, Journals and Periodicals, Proscribed Literature, Audio Archives, Films Clippings, Videotapes, animation and multimedia. 

Through this museum, archival photographs and documents that provide a glimpse into historical events that shaped India's destiny will be brought to public domain.

Tagbin - End to End Experience Creators has worked to create the experiences at these museums. 

It will take visitors to the journey of the Indian independence movement starting from 1857 to the Transfer of Power in 1947. It will be divided into zones which show the early sparks leading to the first, second, and third phases of independence, Tagbin said. 

This interactive museum aims to enlighten youth about the occurrences in Punjab and the rest of India leading up to the Jallianwala Bagh massacre. 
“Azadi-Ke-Diwane” which is an attempt to pay tribute to the Martyrs of India, and “Yaad-e-Jallian” which is a tribute to those who fell in the Jallianwala Bagh massacre 100 years ago have been tailored with sensory experiences.

“These museums will mark a new era of the way museums are built in India. 
Our multi-sensory experience inside the Museums using latest immersive and interactive technologies is first of its kind in India,” said Saurav Bhaik, CEO, Tagbin.
