This museum is filled with the presence of Ghandi. I was overwhelmed with emotion in a way I had not expected. It is both a tribute to Ghandi and to the history of India.

A very impressive attraction and I would highly recommend a visit here. A former residence of Gandhi which has retained its former glory whilst being converted into a museum to tell the story and celebrate the life of Gandhi. I found it fascinating and the section with the numerous different model scenes which each depicted a different story was truly... More

If you want to learn about the heritage and history of India, then you must definitely see the Gandhi Museum. It was a very informative and actually emotional experience to see the place Gandhi lived and worked. If you are interested or want to add a deeper level to your visit of India, then I would definitely recommend you see... More

The builning is nice with a feelenf of history. Though items on display are not that interesting. I am not much into history, so reading endless texts and looking at puppet displays from the days of Gandhi was not very tempting

This was the house that Mahatma Gandhi stayed in when he visited Mumbai. Now its a museum. Lots of artifacts, books and lifeworks of Gandhi. A good place to visit. Toilets could do with a bit of cleaning and sprucing up.

You may have seen the film, well here is your chance to see photos, model scenes and read all about his life. There is only one room that shows how he lived, but it is great to visit his home.

We enjoyed a morning visit to this museum which offers a leisurely activity (if there are not crowds) and a great opportunity to learn about Gandhi through the many photographs and stories laid out on the walls. Go to the top floor and walk down through the corridors and stairs rather than start at the bottom and walk up. The... More
