The Partition Museum

The world's first Partition Museum is now open at the historic Town Hall building in Amritsar. The Partition of India was one of the most defining events in the nation's history. It was perhaps the largest migration in human history, with some 18 million affected. The Museum is part of the newly inaugurated Heritage Street at Amritsar, which starts at the Golden Temple and ends at the Town Hall.
