Get Direction

The partition museum inaugurated its new exhibition on the history of the Jallianwala Bagh massacre on 11th August 2018.This exhibition uses newspaper reports, archival material and photographs from the period to tell the story of Punjab in 1919 in a new way – through its impact on people’s lives. It also focuses on the fact that the massacre was one part of a much larger system of colonial oppression in Punjab, that lasted for months even years.

Housed at the historic Town Hall in Amritsar, the Partition Museum is a memorial to those who lived through the Partition, the largest mass migration in human history. The Museum opened all its galleries to the public on 17th August 2017 and in the last year has become one of the top tourist destinations in Amritsar.
