Very interesting visit and quite informative. The walls are literally covered in material for visitors to read. The second floor multimedia exhibit was interesting but didn't learn very much. Also appreciate that the museum is free.

We spent a quiet hour following in Mahatma Gandhi's path to the prayer garden where he was assassinated and walking through the house and rooms in which he lived the last few months of his life. Most impressive for me was the realization that this was not a compilation of artifacts but, rather, was designed to introduce us to or... More

As we move inside we see hundreds of articles and photos telling the story of gandhiji's life and death. The best part indoor is the dedicated part inside telling the... More

So much information about Gandhi's life, presented mostly on large poster-like displays in a cooled building. Very nice dioramas represent important parts of his life. There is a short video display with a song and flashed images from Gandhi's life in the central atrium. You can visit the room where he spent the last few months of his life and... More

This was a special last place for our family to visit. To be able to walk his last steps and read some of his more important sayings and influences that he had was a great way for our family to end off our time in Delhi!

Gandhi Smriti is located in the old Birla House on Tees January Marg. This is the place where Gandhiji spent the last few days of his life, and where he was assassinated on 30 Jan 1948. We went there as a family and it was a treat. A unique museum extremely well laid out, with memorabilia of the Mahatma and... More
