Great to see that we have started recognizing the great builders of modern india and getting out of the political leadership. The models and the display is tacky and so obviously done by a burarucrat and not a museum curator.

Feel the patriot in you awaken, when you visit this small house, but a 3 storey one, with incredible history. You will be surprised to find out, that the former president's family is still living in such small residence.

You cant go inside the house. Only can view from outside. Since its the house of APJ, travel agents add that to your itinerary. Nothing special. Go for APJ memorial instead. Its amazing.
