National War Museum

The National War Museum, situated in Princess Park near India Gate, is dedicated to preserving India’s military history. Its design emphasizes street-level engagement, inviting passersby with features like the Memorial Walk of Fame. One of the key design features is the creation of a porous yet continuous face of red sandstone at the confluence of the India Gate Circle road and Copernicus Marg. This strategic placement allows the museum to synergistically express its presence alongside the more historic monuments in the vicinity. The massing and presence of the museum are carefully designed to blend seamlessly with the adjacent structures, ensuring a harmonious integration into the surrounding urban fabric. The museum’s strategic placement allows it to coexist seamlessly with its surroundings, symbolizing remembrance and patriotism. Through its design and architectural expression, the museum serves as a tribute to India’s armed forces and their sacrifices, fostering curiosity and interest among visitors.
