New Delhi, May 14 : A museum displaying the government’s historical and rare collections of Mughal antiquities and the Indian War Memorial would soon add to the array of British barrack buildings, redeveloped as museums, in the Red Fort here. It could open by 2019 end.

The announcement, coming ahead of the International Museum Day on May 18, was made by leading art gallery DAG, which won the bidding conducted by the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI).

The DAG has previously developed the Drishyakala museum, which houses four exhibitions on development of Indian modern art from 18th century onwards. It stands along with museums on Jallianwala Bagh, India’s first war of Independence in 1857 and Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose.

“The success of Drishyakala has been humbling, and is borne by the numbers — with 250,000 people having walked through the museum since it opened, an average of 3,000 people a day — and this success is in no small measure also due to the ASI’s vision of creating a museum hub at the Red Fort,” DAG said.

DAG also announced an expansion of its gallery spaces.

In the next few months, it will add three new gallery spaces here, of which the most iconic will be the gallery at ‘7, Jose Rizal Marg’ in the heart of the capital’s diplomatic enclave. The DAG Experience Centre will be another gallery space home to art, archives, library and research centre, a restoration studio, among others.

The third space will open in the coming months in Lutyens’ Delhi.

DAG also announced its foray into publishing in multiple languages to make art history and art more accessible
