Located in Qaiserbagh, the 1857 Memorial Museum Residency is a dedicated piece to the First War of Independence of 1857. Containing relics and antiques of the time, the museum also has visual displays of the war.
Besides, it has umpteen photographs, maps, manuscripts and paintings depicting the struggle. Constructed by the British colonisers of Awadh in 1774, the Lucknow Residency was further completed by Nawab Sadat Ali Khan in 1800. However, the 1857 war caused massive damage to the Residency's infrastructure.
Today, the Archaeological Survey of India manages the 1857 Memorial Museum Residency. There are organised tours and packages alongside national events that are regularly held here.
