A high-tech state of the art museum, “Azadi Ke Diwane" was inaugurated by the Minister of Culture Dr. Mahesh Sharma at the premises of the Red Fort. Archaeological Survey of India dedicates this to the martyrs of Indian freedom struggle and to curate and preserve documents, memories, and facts pertaining. The museum uses experiential touch displays, scenario-based installations, and the more conventional informative displays to recreate memories from Indian history between 1857 to 1947.

This museum pays tribute to the sacrifices and martyrdom of thousands of Indians, many of whom remain anonymous to date, with no records in history capturing their sacrifice for our motherland. The recognition and pay homage to the ultimate sacrifice of these unknown and unsung heroes of our freedom struggle. In the form of a national homage site, National Archives of India wishes to keep alive the memories of these patriots and express their deep and abiding gratitude to them. The narrative is an attempt to capture and preserve their sentiments, courage, heroism, the nobility of character and lofty ideals.

The display has been broadly divided into three phases of the freedom struggle that stretches across the abovementioned time period. Archeological survey of India sources will also provide information and stories pertaining to many hitherto unknown or long forgotten freedom fighters. The museum will display a national registry of martyrs. A wide variety of content stretching from public records to multimedia aids will be used to reconstruct multiple moments from history. The interactive interfaces and augmented reality enabled experiential displays will allow the audience to have a completely novel and immersive experience of the moments. The museum will target local and international tourist audiences as well as future generations, and hopefully, will be effective in preserving the memories of this very important chapter of Indian history. For the first time, futuristic technology is being used at such a scale to reconstruct the past for the present. 

This multi-sensory experience of the museum was created by Tagbin, end-to-end Experiential Marketing Company, in collaboration with Expression Ad Agency. We talked to Saurav Bhaik, CEO of Tagbin who designed and engineered the Museum and he says, ”Azadi-Ke-Diwane, the experiential museum will help visitors to relive the struggle of Indian freedom fighters and value the freedom we enjoy today."

In this interactive museum, visitors can also search and read the stories of thousands of martyrs who laid their lives during the Freedom Struggle of India. The dictionary compiled by the Indian Council of Historical Research (ICHR) can be accessed at the touchscreen tables giving a multi in the museum.
