PMC plans wax museum styled on Madame Tussauds

The proposal by corporators seeks to recreate scenes of the freedom struggle using wax statues of freedom fighters to inspire citizens

The Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) administration has given a positive response to corporators' proposal for a wax museum on the lines of Madame Tussauds at the Mahatma Phule Museum in Shivajinagar. The proposal seeks to recreate scenes of the freedom struggle using wax statues of freedom fighters to inspire citizens.

"The civic body will have to take the opinion of experts and appoint a consultant for building such a museum. Since the Mahatma Phule Museum comes under the purview of the state government, it will be necessary to get their permission and suggestions," officials said.

The civic administration said that it is possible to come up with such a museum.

"There have been many incidents and movements from 1857 to 1947 that can be highlighted to spread awareness about the freedom struggle among the new generation. Students from all over the world come to the city for higher education and such a museum would help them gain more knowledge about our freedom struggle. This will also help the city get worldwide recognition," officials added.
