About High Court Museum

Located within the premises of the Punjab and Haryana High Court, the High Court Museum in Chandigarh is a unique institution that offers visitors a captivating glimpse into the judicial history of the city. Within the museum, visitors can explore a wide range of exhibits that recount and recapitulate the historical background of the High Court of Punjab and Haryana. These exhibits offer a glimpse into landmark judgments and court records of immense importance, such as the trial of Bhagat Singh in Lahore, the arrest of Dr. Kitchlew, the creation of the post of Chief Justice, and the arrest of Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru. The museum also houses a collection of remarkable artifacts, including Nathu Ram Godse's handcuffs and a copy of the original Constitution of India, signed by the Constituent Committee. Furthermore, the museum recreates an old courtroom within its premises, complete with authentic equipment such as stamps, heaters, sofas, pen stands, typewriters, and calendars. This recreation provides visitors with a visual representation of how courtrooms appeared during that era, allowing them to envision the atmosphere and ambiance of legal proceedings from the past.
