India to Inaugurate World’s Largest Museum at Raisina Hill by 2025

Union Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat recently announced that India will convert the North and South Blocks of Delhi’s Raisina Hill complex into the world’s largest museum by 2025. This ambitious project aims to create a museum nearly twice the size of France’s Louvre. Shekhawat shared this revelation with the media, expressing his pride in being part of this historic initiative.

Agreement with France – Largest Museum

France and India have signed an agreement to facilitate this monumental endeavor. The Minister mentioned that they will complete the Central Vista redevelopment project in 2025. They will relocate the offices and transform the North and South Blocks into a museum, emphasizing the project’s scale.

Showcasing India’s Rich History

The proposed museum will exhibit India’s rich and diverse history, spanning over 5,000 years. This will offer visitors a comprehensive understanding of India’s cultural and historical heritage, housed in an architecturally significant setting.

World Heritage Committee Meeting – Largest Museum

Shekhawat also highlighted another significant event: the upcoming meeting of the World Heritage Committee, of which India is a signatory. This meeting, to be held in India for the first time next month, is expected to result in the addition of another Indian heritage site. “India, which occupies the third place in the world in the number of world heritage sites, is likely to get one more heritage site this time,” Shekhawat stated, reflecting India’s ongoing commitment to preserving and celebrating its cultural heritage globally.

Central Vista Redevelopment

The redevelopment of the Central Vista and the conversion of the North and South Blocks into a museum align with India’s broader goals of cultural preservation and tourism promotion. The Central Vista project aims to rejuvenate the heart of India’s capital, creating modern and functional spaces while respecting the area’s historical significance.

A New Cultural Landmark

The new museum is expected to become a major cultural landmark, attracting visitors from around the world. It will serve not only as a repository of India’s past but also as a symbol of its future aspirations. By partnering with France, home to one of the world’s most famous museums, India is positioning itself as a global leader in the preservation and promotion of cultural heritage.

The development of the world’s largest museum at Raisina Hill is a testament to India’s rich history and its commitment to cultural preservation. With the support of France and the successful completion of the Central Vista project, this museum will stand as a beacon of India’s past and future, offering an unparalleled cultural experience to visitors from around the globe.
