An Experience of Sacrifices Shall Educate the Youth
The level of interactivity in traditional museums is almost dead. These museums are static in matter of displaying: archival information, posters, paintings or artifacts, lacking maximum content absorption. Therefore, people generally lose interest in connecting with the story behind displayed items inside the museum. Yaad-e-Jallian is created to educate the youth and teleport them to the actual ground of bloodshed. It's an interactive and engaging platform that tells people how and what happened before & after the event of Jallianwala Bagh Massacre.
Wear Their Couture, Feel What Freedom Fighters Felt
Yaad-E-Jallian museum is a creative work of engineers that takes one back to the battleground of 13 April 1919. This museum is designed with a strong motive to let people wear a role of freedom fighters and to never forget their sacrifice. Newfangled techniques are used to exactly create an emotion which may help people to learn what happened during the tragedy. A series of installations elaborate – ‘how the incident took place and situation in the country afterwards’.
