One of the highlights of our trip to India. A really informative museum detailing the history of the struggle for Independence.

All I knew about Gandhi was what I saw in the movie, and the fact that LOTS of things in India have the name Gandhi attached. The museum was a nicely presented collection about his life and work. Many photos are artifacts, quotations, a reading room, all set in a beautiful old building. This is a museum for learning. It... More

This was a fascinating insight into a man of great wisdom,courage & peace. In the contemporary world he would win the Nobel peace prize. If the history & story is of interest to you,allow at least 2 hours

A museum containing a wealth of information about Gandhi and his story. Some interesting photos and statues. The Gandhi Smriti is probably a better bet, similar information but in a more poignant setting.

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!

However, the other things kept in the museum are of... More

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.
