On a recent return trip to Delhi having previously worked in the area until 2 years ago, I found myself pondering which "sites" I would like to go back and revisit. Gandhi Smriti quickly came out on top. I wasn't disappointed on my return - it's a lovely, peaceful site and has enough historical background to understand enough about Gandhi's... More

Knowing very little about Gandhi before our trip, visiting this place of remembrance and the museum filled with information about the man, made me want to learn more. The grounds are quite beautiful, a good place to sit and meditate on Gandhi's teachings.

This was a stop on our tour and didn't at all appeal to us however, the entire museum and monument complex is well thought out and designed that we were impressed. The outside area is both peaceful and reverential. Museum exhibits show Gandhi's life, philosophy and spirit in a wide variety of media and the museum guides are interesting and... More

Really neat museum where you can spend hours reading about Ghandi. One entire room is dedicated to his last 48 hours, etc..not a huge place, but you can definitely make a good visit out of this. Good for a rainy day! Easy rickshaw ride from CP.

Mr. Gandhi's amazing life very well described. You can understand why he is a true hero and worldwide leader. The interactive museum is very well done, even though, signs explaining how to operate the devices would be fine. Also the videos are interesting but quite long to assist standing up, some chairs or places to sit are needed.

Not many people visit this place... IN my opinion it is more interesting than Raj Ghat, since here you have the chance to see the place where Gandhi lived his last days... It's really worth the visit!! All my groups go there!!

Well maintained place. The eternal flame burns forever. It is a nice quite place where one can meditate or pray. There is greenery all around. One has to remove his/her footwear to go inside.
