I knew very little about Gandhi before visiting and the place is loaded with interesting items, speeches and exhibitions. The outside is also a beautiful place to see with the sculptures and recreated house. The only negative thing is that it gives a completely one sided account of his life. Also it's free!

It is the museum of Gandhi ji, the great non violent freedom fighter of India ,who got freedom for India by non -violence means. There are lot of articles in the museum like his bed, his bamboo stick,charkha etc. His method was ultimate and beyond the vision of british rulers. However, the other things kept in the museum are of... More

This area displays where his cremation monument sits. Nice lawn and just a peaceful place. It does't display any pictures of him or anything, just his resting monument.

The amount of things about ghandi here cant be found anywhere else in the world, including the clothes he wore when he was assassinated. The air conditioning isnt the best, but overall its comfortable. There was hardly anyone there so it was quiet and peaceful. No photography is allowed and the wash room facilities arent the best either, the only... More

Outdoor statues are good. Gandhi smriti has a better museum. If you want to only visit one then visit Gandhi Smriti. It is good for a short 15-20 mins visit.

A must see place in Delhi which will take you thru Mahtma Gandhi's life from birth to political life till his assasination by means of phots, painting and written articles. There is huge statue of Mahtma Gandhi in the site.

If you are willing to know about the history of India then this place is a must visit. If you are visiting India and you skip this place you will not have an idea about the various trends, buildings and the culture aspects. This place tells you, how Indian politics came into birth and what the vision of current politicians... More

This should be a required stop for every Indian and every visitor to India. I was so glad to see so many students going through. We need to understand what Gandhi Ji's vision was for this country and how far off track our politicians have taken us and we need to understand that it will be the people who put... More
