It was interesting to see some of the history of Gandhi. It was a quiet tribute to a great man's legacy.

It is a travel back in time. Definitely worthy. The silent halls of Rani Mangammal's summer palace adds elegance to the display. Do not visit here on a rush. Best savored on a relaxed stroll. Be prepared to spend 2 - 3 hours & you may get an immersive experience! If you are able to visit the Gandhi Kutir, a... More

Visiting this museum was a very informative experience for me. I was especially impressed by the amount of artifacts they have (the glasses!!!). Keep an eye out for some of the letters written by Gandhi to various world leaders, including one to Hitler before WWII. I agree with a previous reviewer that if you don't like reading, than this is... More

Only knew the highlights about gandhi before I visited the museum. Very well organized panels and displays in sequential order, including background of british colonialism. We listened to school kids singing outside the museum. Overall very traditional museum passive experience. I think there are other spots in the museum complex with activites for school groups.

we spent about an hour here and thought it was very informative. it chronicles Gandhi's life and gives you the history of India so you can see how everything interweaves. There is a small memorial garden to the side and Gandhi's house although i am not sure if it's a replica or his actual house rebuilt on site. Quite moving... More

You dont like to read or you do not like to read history- skip this one! It was saddening to see tourists just rush through the history! They have very detailed, step by step contributions of Gandhiji as well as other revolutionaries with some nice paintings. You will know the incidents which happened at various places(India and Outside)relating to independence.... More

Well maintained. But remember there is a timing pressure. They close from 1 to 2 pm. Gandhiji's robe before death is there. Somehow I did not find any of the bookshops open.

Gandhi Museum is one among 5 of the museums dedicated to his personal belongings. Very few museums in India has things related to Gandhi ji. This is a must visit place in Madurai.
