What I loved most about this place is the miniature models that takes you through the life journey of Gandhi ji. That's an interactive way of telling a story and must interest kids and adults like. I enjoyed my time here - even seating down at the library quietly gave me some peace. I would surely want to come back... More

It was the inspirational museum of the well-known hero, Gandhi. I could understand how his life was like at that time. It was so impressed his room looked like it was his working place rather than his comfortable place at home. So simple. It's free to visit but you donate some money when you go out.

Well worth a visit. Educational and inspiring. Letters poniant and insightful. Building itself undergoing work so could be better. Difficult to find, but found eventually through public transport and public help.

Going through the museum is amazing, but it is unguided. There are lots of informational plaques to explain the rooms and things in them, which is very helpful. 90 minutes should be more than enough time to roam about and see how Ghandi lived while in Bombay and the critical points in his life. Don't miss the letters he wrote... More

We particularly enjoyed the miniature dioramas of the scenes in Gandhi's life on the top floor -- don't miss this. Also, seeing the mat on the floor where the man slept was impressive. You can feel the history in this place! Don't expect glitz -- this is an understated place, with somewhat dim lighting, and can be crowded.

This is not a fancy museum, but it is one that if you view the diorama's of Gandhi's life, read his letter to Hitler and read his quotes on woman and mankind... you walk away with a profound sense of a man that spent his life to better his country, mankind and the world. As Gandhi would have wanted it...... More

The Gandi Journey exposition with little is worth to visit. The house is in a quite neighbourgh. You may also see inside of a traditional? Mumbai house.

The room where Gandhi lived was a highlight. The rest of the house is poorly maintained with pictures repeating over and over. Bathrooms didn't work.
