National Childrens Museum, New Delhi Overview

Children are the future of India, they just need an upsurge which will help them to use the best of their potential and do miracles. Often we have a lot to outcast but don’t have the right platform to flaunt what we possess. Considering this National Bal Bhavan was established, which gave the children the right platform to enhance and put to display their talents and also to channel them in the right path. This institution has been formed for the sole purpose of providing various activities, chances and a pedestal to the children to interact, experiment, create and perform in accordance to their age and capability. The best part about this place is that it sets the children free from any kind of bondage in the form gender, religion, intelligence, status, stress etc and provides them a healthy environment to grow in a much healthier way.

National Bal Bhawan is an autonomous body under the ministry of Human Resource Development (HRD) and is located at Kotla Road, near I.T.O., New Delhi. Hence, it is a step of the Government for the betterment of the next generation. It is open on five days a week excluding Monday and Sunday and the visiting hours are 9 a.m. to 5.30 p.m.

Dealing with the children, lying in the age group between 5 to 16 years, Bal Bhawan puts forward a lot of choices in the form of activities ranging between performing arts, science activities, physical activities etc. A very important role which this institution plays in the lives of the children is that it lets them engage in a wide variety of activities and doing this makes it easier for them to identify the area towards which they have maximum inclination.

Keeping this in mind, Bal Bhawan provides a large number of performing art activities for the children to explore and understand different media of dance, drama, music, puppetry etc. Here, the children can even find various musical instruments with which they are free to experiment with.
