The museum is dedicated to Mahatma Gandhi and his Charkha. Gandhi was a vocal advocate of Charkha and the museum has an interesting display of various types of Charkhas. It is not a very large museum and you can see all the exhibits in under 30 minutes. A small school on the premises also conducts classes on spinning.

The National Charkha Museum is a museum exhibiting the history and evolution of humble spinning wheel, the Charkha. The museum is housed in the garden area in the middle of Connaught Place. The building itself is a one roomed Neoclassical building that completely white. I understand that the Charkha was important tool that Gandhi thought would be a point of national rejuvenation for India. The exhibits are beautifully exhibited, but there’s not much information and to be honest, I actually didn’t learn very much.

The two steel sculptures on the grounds of the were more interesting. One is a lion made up of charkha wheels, the order a giant sculpture of a charkha wheel. The entrance fee for the museum is basically pocket change, so plus one star for that.

The Charkha Museum was inaugurated in 2017 to honour the charkha (the indigenous spinning-wheel) and its association with khadi, with Mahatma Gandhi and the freedom struggle, and—by extension—its symbolization of Indian handloom and indigenous production. Appropriately enough, this tiny museum (it’s only one room, and the small space outside, devoted to some installation art) is situated right opposite Khadi Bhavan, in the heart of Connaught Place.

The Charkha Museum’s entrance is just beyond the entrance to Palika Bhavan. It’s hard to miss, because it’s marked by an important landmark: a huge model of a charkha, made out of steel, which sits right outside the gallery of the museum. You first have to go to the ticket booth at street level and buy tickets (Rs 20 per adult; this includes a free memento, which consists of a strip of khadi). Children up to five years of age go free.

Beside the ticket counter are a few steps which lead up to the museum grounds. The grounds are small, but have some interesting installation art. I didn’t much care for the statues of the three monkeys that symbolize Gandhiji’s ‘See no evil, hear no evil, say no evil’ philosophy, but the ‘Make in India’ lion, crafted all out of stainless steel, is very sleek and beautiful. The installation that dominates the area, though, is the giant charkha, 25 ft long and weighing 2.5 tonnes, built by 20 craftsmen over a period of 72 days.

The installation art, as far as I was concerned, was the best part of the museum.

The museum itself consists of what could have been an interesting collection—a set of fourteen heritage charkhas, dating from between 1912 and 1977, donated by various people. These are displayed in a long, rectangular hall, with labels about each charkha recording its donor, date of manufacture of the charkha, etc. There are ancillary photographs, mostly of Gandhiji or other freedom fighters. There are what seemed like faux artefacts, such as spectacles of the type Gandhiji wore, wooden sandals (also like Gandhi’s) and so on. There are some samples of khadi, of spun yarn as well as cloth. There’s a very brief (and not easily understood) display that tries to explain how yarn is spun using a charkha.

This could have been made far more interesting with some interaction built in—it would have been so much more interesting to be able to try your hand at using a charkha, for instance—and with far better labelling of displays. Right now, it’s pretty boring, and we were out of here in less than ten minutes.

The museum opens between 9 AM and 9 PM.
