An interesting place to visit. You don't realise the impact the whole family has had on Indian history until you see it laid out like thyis. If you are passing and have time worth looking at.

Well worth a visit and is a complimentary attraction. This is where Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated. Lovely gardens and exceptionally friendly and helpful staff. I felt the interactive display was just a little hackneyed.

Easy to maneuver since it's not very crowded. I'm not necessarily a Gandhi fan, but his impact is undeniable and it was interesting to learn more about him. Free to get in.

Thoughtfully reading every Ghandi quote in this memorial is worth the visit alone to the finally resting place of this national hero. I think the museum is minimalist and thoughtful and a great reflection of the man himself. The only thing that caused me some confusion and can be skipped easily was the wall describing the conflicts leading up to... More

This place was great. Take the time and trouble to stop off for an hour and explore this wonderful historical site.

It's odd that the Indian government would have spent $10 million to subsidize the Hollywood film about Gandhi, and pocket change on this museum. It consists of too many photos, badly reproduced, badly hung, and clumsily labeled. South Africa's Apartheid Museum at times made my hair stand on end, especially with the story of Nelson Mandela. But this museum just... More

A nice place to relive Gandhi's journey through life. The "dioramas" are life like and beautiful. Children will love it too.

This is a very simply laid out museum, filled with story boards, containing information about Gandhi and his life. There is a lot of reading. But it also contains the clothing he was wearing when he was assassinated.A good place to visit if you want to learn about this great man.
