We friends just wanted to see Gandhi Smriti for a fleeting moment, but ended up spending over 1 hour at this place. It is so simple, yet so rich in its message. The surroundings are so pious, not a negative thoughts creep in your mind. A powerful symbol of peace in Delhi for generations to get inspired from. A must... More

I absolutely loved this museum. It was simple, yet truly expressed a profound respect and reverence for this amazing figure in our worlds history. I was moved to tears by this visit.

I'd been to the Indira Gandhi Smriti and Mani Bhavan (in Mumbai) before visiting this; Gandhi Smriti is not as well-designed or well-maintained. The museum on the ground floor has a lot of information about Gandhi, his writings, testimonials, photographs, etc. but in most places, there are large blocks of text, making it difficult to stay focused. I particularly liked... More

I wish I could have gone here NOT on a tour. You want to be able to take your time, look, read, and absorb the feeling of peace. Be careful if they have watered the grounds. There was a wet, muddy place, and I slipped and fell.

A very tranquil place and a tribute to where the great man was murdered. Mostly free, but the museum I believe had a fee but was closed on my visit for May Day. This wasn't on my day trip agenda but I asked to be taken there and the guide was very accommodating. Be aware there is a military barracks... More

This is a very meaningful tribute to the life of the man. It is not ostentatious, in fact it is quite simple and plain, expressing how he lived his life. We visited in the late morning and spent over an hour walking through the garden, looking at the displays and visiting the house and his room. We could have spent... More

I liked the beauty of the grounds with the flowers and the greenery. I liked seeing Gandhi's footsteps in cement leading from where he stayed to the spot where he was assassinated. I liked the placards with Gandhi quotations and the history of the Indian Independence Movement. I disliked that there was a tacky merchant selling memorabilia off of a... More
