This great man was on a mission for peace and love in the world. Here, you will see a letter that he wrote to Hitler, as well as proof of countless acts of sacrifice, giving, and selflessness. A humble man of intense prayer who lived for many years sharing a humble home. Go and see this !!

If you look past the faded pictures on the walls, the dusty artifacts and dioramas, you'll find that this place is worth the visit. The letters written by world leaders paying homage to Gandhi coupled with a few of his quotes interspersed throughout the museum are inspirational. I think this place has seen better days and could use a renovation.... More

A ship's tour in Mumbai -----time is always an issue because the organisers try to fit too much in! Plus the traffic! I know a little bit about Gandhi having watched the Ben Kingsley film. Entering the extremely crowded museum, I was determined to find out more! One floor had many photos with newspaper-extracts/annotations. On the next floor there were... More

Visited this place again after some 8 years and it is well maintained although it runs on donations. Our kids really enjoyed the pictorial learning that is portrayed through Gandhi's life. Very enlightening indeed. The place becomes quite busy though!

This place was where Gandhi studied and his library is here. Also there are many photographs, sculptures, and even Gandhi's spinning wheel in the room where he used it. Always more to learn about his life and beliefs.

The Gandhi museum is an interesting place to visit to get glimpses of the life of the great man! However I think that the displays could be better organised, although they have done the best they can considering the size of the museum.

This place can tell you a lot of history about Ghandi and his Life and how much the Indians loved him. For my opinion it is a must to visit this place. No entrance fee!!

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.
