It's located in an unassuming little building but it's got a big message! This museum is a pleasant walk through the history of a great man who lived what he preached - nonviolent protest. There are lots of photos and explanations about a man who wore many hats during his lifetime.

The Gandhi Museum is a "must see" in New Delhi! The museum houses lots of original photos and documents. Plan to spend at least 2 hours there, as it is fascinating!

After we visited the Red Fort we continued by taxi to the Rajghat.The entrance is separate for men and women.You begin your visit in a big park.We went only to the ceremonial black granite platform This is the site of Mahatma Gandhi's cremation. A modest inscription reminds us of his last words:Oh God ! In contrast to the black platform... More

ガンジーの言葉 "I learnt the lesson of nonviolence from my wife, when I tried to bend her to my will. "というのがあり、博物館に入ったところにも書かれていました。言葉の真意とは別に、「そうか、ガンジーほどの人でも奥さんには勝てなかったか」と笑ってしまいました。多くの遺品や資料からガンジーの人となりが伝わってくる博物館です。 ※ガンジーに興味がない人には退屈かと思います。

We visited the museum today and really enjoyed it. It holds so many items of Gandhi and you can read all about his life and the political situation back then. Afterwards we walked to the memorial close by which was a really nice park where we could rest for a bit from busy Delhi. Definitely worth a visit!

It was a humbling experience to walk in the final footsteps of Ghandiji and to then stop and pay our respects at the actual place of his demise - will remain with me always. The museum was also quite poignant - seeing his glasses and the room where he stayed - all very, very humbling. So glad we visited.
