This is a great stop on any itinerary. I spent about 30 min inside which is a wealth of information, pictures, and personal artifacts. Do not miss it!

I visited Gandhi's Museum on a day tour of Mumbai. As I walked in Gandhi's footsteps the artefacts, photographs and information deepened my understanding of India's most famous leader. It is a simple museum that is worth a visit.

We were humbled and inspired to learn about the trails Mahatma Gandhi had to go through to fight for respect, equality, independence and peace for the people of India through peaceful means. The best part was reading his letters to the different presidents/ prime ministers (even to Hitler) where you get a glimpse of his intelligence, sincerity and kindness. A... More

Tucked away in a quiet lane in between the bustling Girgaum locality, this gem of history is one of the city's best kept secrets. Even though I have studied local history at school level through the indian curriculum, I was surprised to learn little-known facts about Mahatma Gandhi while browsing through the letters and mini-picture models in the museum. Small,... More

I was in Mumbai recently during monsoon season and the only day I had available to tour was a very, very rainy one! I rented a taxi for about 5 hours (total cost 1800 rupees plus 200R tip). This museum was the only thing I actually had on my agenda but my driver, Mr. Khan kept me busy and intrigued... More

I am so happy that my Lonely Planet guidebook recommended visiting this delightful museum. If you think you know anything about Gandhi, go here and you will learn the real story behind the great man. The museum has quite a collection of mementos and memorabilia. Not the cleanest place I have been to, but easily overlooked.

The temple of spiritual connotation reflecting the man of uniqueness. The ambience is overpowering with simplicity and purpose. Highly recommended if you keen to indulge in real human spirit that conquered the world with its simplicity.

This was a hidden gem, if you dont know much about ghandi and his life you will leave here with a feel for his story. Small house with simple displays but authentic and fascinating. No hordes of tourists here like there are at gateway to india!
