For all Gandhi-philes, history buffs, and just human beings interested in knowing about how to live a good life, a useful life for all: make this museum the tandem visit when you go to the must- see Gandhi Smriti, where the Mahatma lived and was shot. I go to India every couple of years and the Gandhi sites and memorabilia... More

In the museum emphasizes on showing photographs about Gandhi's life and his utensils during he was alive. It closes around 5.30 pm. There is bookstore selling books about Gadhi at the exit of the museum.

This museum is an extensive collection of art, photos and memorabilia of Gandhi's life. Many items were donated from his family. No AC and the souvenir shop isn't great, but still 100% worth it.

A bit of a mixed bag - very comprehensive if overwhelmingly wordy & somewhat dry exhibition downstairs & then upstairs a series of quirky interactive exhibits. Full credit to them for trying - there were lots of staff to show you around- & it was fun but I am not sure how much I gained from either floor if I... More

An affordable museum full of good and instructive Gandhi quotes and effects from his daily life. Not too big not too small - only what you need to see and learn

A little dusty and musty, but I learned a lot. A well-told historical treatment of the emergence of independent India and the value of non-violent civil disobedience.
