This is where Gandhi spent his final days and moments before being assassinated. It's a beautiful place in a very peaceful setting. Free and near Lodi park so a fun day to do both - Khan Market is down the road for food options. Lovely museum, informative and moving to learn about this great man.

I went in with few expectations and was pleasantly surprised -- this museum is extremely well done and you can spend hours here learning about Gandhi's life and message. There's even an extremely interactive (think futuristic) component to the museum which kids love.

I really enjoyed my visit to Gandhi's house and learning of his last days on earth. It was very touching to walk the grounds he walked and to read his many messages he left. He was so wise... I felt a peace come over me as I walked through the photo journey of his life. Plan to spend some time... More

Plan to spend at least 3 hours here. It is free as well. However, it is amazing. The quality of experience is superior. In addition to the historical photos, actual furniture, room, belongings etc… there is a superior multi-media set up - part museum, part installation - all amazing. Do yourself a favour and have this on your must visit... More

You get to see pictures and audio clips of the great leader. You can couple it with Raj Ghat which is the place where the last rites were... More

You can view the site as a purely historical or political site, or you can do homage to a great spiritual leader. And it might be said - what difference does the actual site make? yet we humans are meaning-making animals, and the actual locations do matter to us. I recommend that you close your eyes, breathe deeply and just... More
