Location: The Lucknow Residency and Museum was located in Chattar Manzil and Lai Baradari earlier, but now it has been relocated to the new building in Lucknow Zoo, in the state of Uttar Pradesh.
Description: The Lucknow Residency and Museum reminds of the uprising that took place in the year 1857. The museum is designed to reflect the illusion of the First War of Independence which occurred in the year 1857. The Lucknow Museum is comprised of two parts; one is located at ground floor and the other is in the basement. The ground floor houses four galleries, whereas the basement houses seven galleries. The entrance room consists of the main residency where paintings made before 1857 are displayed and there is a map that shows the battle points during the war. The galleries in the ground floor, marked from A to D, consist of lithographs, documents and portraits. The galleries located in the basement, marked from E to K, consist of the replicas of residency in stone, gun barrels, paintings, musical instruments, documents from National Archives that were related to freedom struggle in 1857, lithographs representing the views of important buildings during the war and the operations.
Activities: The ancient items and archaisms kept in the residency and the museum are significant as they represent the never to be forgotten memories of the reign of Nawabs and the British era.
