National Sports Museum

IAS Prelims 2023

The Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports is establishing National Sports Museum, first of its kind, at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, New Delhi.

The Museum will showcase the India’s achievements in sports and also focus on the traditional sports within the country.

The aim of the Museum is to popularise the sports as a way of life within the country. Accordingly, the proposed Museum would go beyond the classical approach of a collection of memorabilia to become an interactive venue of interest for all age groups.

In addition it will display achievements of the Indian greats in sports and also act as an educational hub and offer opportunity for the young to delve into some sporting activity.
