The Partition Museum is the first-ever museum in the entire world to focus on the stories and trauma of the millions who had to suffer the consequences of a ruthless partition that affected this entire subcontinent. Located at Town Hall in Amritsar, developed by the Arts and Cultural Heritage Trust (TAACHT), the museum is a part of the newly inaugurated Heritage Street at Amritsar, which begins from the Golden Temple and ends at the Town Hall.
The collections at the Partition Museum include newspaper clippings, photographs as well as personal items that were donated by people who had witnessed and lived during the Partition. TAACHT aims to establish the Partition Museum as a world-class physical museum dedicated to the memories of the partition of the sub-continent in 1947. The museum is devoted primarily to the victims & survivors, and their lasting legacy. Undoubtedly one of the most brutal events in the history of the Indian sub-continent, it witnessed the disorganised displacement of twelve million people to a new land, causing the painful demise of over two million people.
This aching and moving incident left behind many memories, being excruciatingly painful and valuable at the same time. There has always been silence about the Partition, which is what made the development of such a museum extremely necessary. The Partition Museum has been visited by thousands of visitors ever since its inauguration. The list of visitors includes members from either end of the spectrum, comprising of local families who were affected by the Partition, school children and tourists - domestic & international - who visit Amritsar to witness the Golden Temple or otherwise.
