It IS extremely important to visit here and go to an even more beautiful place, Gandhi Ghat, where Gandhi was cremated. To understand INDIA and how they managed to break the grip of the British after 600 years of colonization NON-VIOLENTLY, you have to learn about the genius of Gandhi. These are the places to do so. He inspired Martin... More

After so many trips to Delhi, I cannot believe I have missed this wonderful free Memorial to Mahatma Gandhi, at the place where he lived his last years, where he worshiped and prayed, meet with high persons in the social, spiritual, political and peace movements of those days and the place where he was brutally assassinated! The grounds are beautiful,... More

Great museum dedicated to an all time saint, our heart is deeply moved by the greatest of human soul. We salute to Mahatma Gandhi. Sadly rarely any politicians in the world ever follow Gandhi's vision to make our planet more peaceful, equal and harmonious.

Visited this interesting museum in Delhi. It shows where he lived the last days of his life and where he was assassinated. It contains numerous exhibits on his life and his efforts to bring about an independent India and the resulting problems with the partition and creation of Pakistan as a country separate from India. Certainly worth and visit.

The place is so serene & wonderfully kept. Suitable for every age group. They explain Gandhiji's life so well through in audio visual. The helpers/guide know their subject and not commercial at all.

The more one travels in India, the more amazing Gahdhi's accomplishments seem. The museum gives a bit of background on some of the steps he took along his way to leading people away from colonial acceptance, but doen's necessarily capture the magic. See in conjunction with his gravesite memorial and the rooms in Mumbai where he wrote the fateful papers... More
