  • Historical place, witnessed so many important events of Indian freedom struggle. Many fascinating objects are available, children of our nation should visit this place to know our history. Good parks are also available in this campus. A planetarium is also available in campus which is again a fascinating place of learning.
  • आनंद भवन इलाहाबाद में एक ऐतिहासिक घर संग्रहालय है, जो नेहरू परिवार पर ध्यान केंद्रित कर रहा है। यह भारतीय राजनीतिक नेता मोतीलाल नेहरु ने 1 9 30 के दशक में नेहरू परिवार के निवास के रूप में सेवा करने के लिए बनाया था जब मूल मन्दन स्वराज भवन (जिसे पूर्वी कहा जाता था) को भारतीय राष्ट्रीय कांग्रेस के स्थानीय मुख्यालय में बदल दिया गया था। जवाहर तारामंडल, यहां स्थित तारामंडल यहां स्थित है, जो कि आकाश विज्ञान के माध्यम से वैज्ञानिकों के बीच में विज्ञान के मनोदशा को ज्योतिष विज्ञान और विज्ञान पर बढावा देने का प्रयास कर रहा है। The Anand Bhavan is a historic house museum in Allahabad, India focusing on the Nehru Family. It was constructed by Indian political leader Motilal Nehru in the 1930s to serve as the residence of the Nehru family when the original mansion Swaraj Bhavan (previously called Anand Bhavan) was transformed into the local headquarters of the Indian National Congress. Jawahar Planetarium, the planetarium is situated here, which has been striving to inculcate scientific temper among masses through its sky shows on astronomy and science.

  • Nice place to revisit our past. Freedom struggle and Nehru's complete family diagram is explained precisely by the images. It also has a book store where from you can buy self help books and autobiographies of laureates.
  • Nice Museum. It has many items used by Nehru and Gandhi family on display. The first floor has many more items of historical interest. Ticket cost for only ground floor 20/- per head and 70/- per head for whole museum. Ticket cost is very high. Photography prohibited on first floor. There is a separate planetarium. Ticket cost 60/- per head.
  • Not to miss. Provides amazing insight into the progress of the Indian freedom struggle and modern Indian politics with the Nehru family evolution as background. Keeps you thinking long after you have left the museum. Quite well maintained too unlike the main city Museum. Unfortunately photography is prohibited.
