This museum is very well organized and there are plenty of displays with detailed descriptions. The entire museum and house has air conditioning so don't worry about the heat if you are there in the summer. Not too kid friendly of an attraction though. Plan on spending at least 2 hours if this type of history is of interest to... More

Given I knew very little about Indira Gandhi, I found this place fascinating. It's a small museum, but has a lot to read and look at. You can get here easily by rickshaw.

The house is well-kept and lots of useful explanations about Indira Gandhi's life and her family. The entire museum (Indira House) was very touching and emotional. Very popular when we visited!

This is a small museum about Indira and Rajiv Gandhi. The museum has pictures and a replica of Indira Gandhi’s house. There is a short video about Indira Gandhi. Good for a quick 30-45 min visit.

Loved the tour of the Late Indira Gandhi museum. You walk through her home see her personal items on display and the history of Indira Gandhi. WE felt privileged to be there. Its a must for people who are interested in the history .

There is nothing special about this place. Congress government wasting national money to maintain this place. One can read the books and internet to know about Indra.

If one is interested in the history of Indian ex prime minister Mrs. Indira Gandhi, then this is the ultimate. This is actually the place where she was staying during her last days and as prime minister of India. Her house is turned to a museum by the govt of India. This museum has all her personal belongings like clothes,... More
