Why try and paint a tawdry murder in the raiments of a monument,when that ought to be the celebration of the sublime? It was an odd sense of history which made Prime Minister Nehru order that the mansion of a multimillionaire that was the final home of Mahatma Gandhi be take over and made into a memorial to keep alive...

I visited the museum on a Sunday when it was not too full - and I must say this was one of the highlights of my stay in New Delhi. It's striking how humble of an abode it is - totally in line with Gandhi's whole outlook on life. There is an interactive exhibit of Gandhi's life on the second... More

This is the place where Mahathma Gandhi lived before he was killed by a gunner. You can see his photos, his work , comments etc. I spent about 3 hours reading those. Really valuable experience.

In the back garden you will trace Gandhi's last footsteps, from his simple dorm to the lovley prayer grounds in the garden. There is also an Interactive museum upstairs dedicated to his influence, ideology and values. Most exhibits are interactive "games", very creative and artistic works, but their content is quite ambiguous or boring. Some of the exhibits try to... More

This museum is a wonderful collection of photos and "sayings" of Ghandi. It was on the ground of this home where he was assassinated. It is difficult to not be amazed and awed by what he accomplished in his life. Definitely worth the time to visit and learn about this great man.

You see where the great man lived and died, but the place provides so much information in so many different ways. Through art and media and film. As well as through blown up pictures of quotes from people that where close to him. You get to see where he walked his last steps and up to where he was shot.... More

There are many museums dedicated to Gandhi, in Calcutta where he spent much of his life and elsewhere. Gandhi Smirti - where he lived for only a few months prior to his assasination is dedicated more to his assassination and the events leading up to it. Located in the Embassy quarter, this walled compound provides a quiet and peaceful refuge... More

Apologies for the heading but this was is the only draw to this place for me personally. I had already been to Mumbai to see his office while he was based there and also the Gandhi Ashram in Ahmedabad, so here in Delhi it was much of the same thing (not an issue if you visit this place first though)....
