It was an honor to visit the place where Gandhi lived and worked, and was unfortunately killed. The grounds are very nice and I felt very moved to walk where he did. The exhibits themselves were not as interesting to me as the presentation was not done in an especially inviting manner. I would say you could spend an hour... More

A quiet place and a must see if you're in Delhi. The actual spot where Gandhi was assassinated. Beautiful gardens.

We actually stumbled across the museum and so pleased we did as it's so interesting, has a lot of artefacts, great for all ages. No charge to get in but a donation is worth giving for the up keep.

This was my first visit to this informative museum. Gandhi's life is so well documented, with many photographs and writings. The gardens are very peaceful and present a wonderful memorial to this great man. I am so glad that I have had the opportunity to visit and learn so much

A hugely humbling and inspirational experience, it makes you question your values. You could easily spend 2 hours reading all of the material downstairs. Upstairs they have tried to make it a bit more high-tec, unnecessary and you couldn't always hear the commentary. Don't miss it.

Lots of different displays and reading. They have really gone out of their way to make it a family place. There are character displays and things to push and pull to make it more interesting for the younger ones plus lots of written info and lovely garden.

Considering Gandhi is held with such respect by India this museum does not really reflect that. There is plenty of information and relics from Gandhi's life however the museum has a tired feel and some information is presented in long passages and quotes often not explaining the context of the life event. Entry is free relaying on donations and this... More

You could spend a whole day here I was fascinated. Quite moving especially to the rear of the building where he was assassinated. Please do go

I really wanted to go to this museum, and found it very interesting, reading all about Gandhi's life. Lots of information, some of which I knew, but a lot that I didn't. I spent a long while reading all the articles quotes etc. and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is definitely worth a visit.
