Constitution Museum at Bengaluru by 2020.

The state government is planning to establish a Constitution Museum in Bengaluru.  This will be an opportunity for the younger generation to get a feel of the debates in the Constituent Assembly, clarifications and justifications from Ambedkar on every article or section of the Constitution, before it was drafted and the history of Karnataka legislature.

The Social Welfare Department is keen to complete the tender process for the project by December this year and make the museum a reality by the end of 2020. The state government is yet to finalize the land for the museum which would come upon a plot of about 40 acres at a cost of about 110 crores. Social Welfare Minister Priyank Kharge is keen to develop it as a National Museum of Constitution and Ambedkar Thoughts.

The proposed museum would not only recreate debates of the Constituent Assembly and present a digital interactive system to provide all the information related to our Constitution but also house a library and a study center for higher academic courses up to Ph.D.

It would also showcase the history and evolution of Karnataka Legislature which had its origins in Praja Prathinidhi Parishat, much before India attained Independence. The proposed museum would not only be a center of academic attraction, but it will also be developed into a tourist destination, according to the Social Welfare Minister.
