We spent around 1.5 hours here and really enjoyed ourselves. The museum was packed full of old photos and showed a bit about Gandhi's history. It was free entry and was a bonus to get out of Mumbai's heat for a while.

In a previous residence of Gandhi, the large house is filled with memoribilia, mementos, and historical artifacts. If you were really into Gandhi, there was lots to discover. As a casual tourist who wanted to know a little more, it was good for me too.

To get a good historic idea about what happened in India and about the history of the country and what role in that was played by Gandhi will get clear in this – former residence of Gandhi – museum and study center. Lots of material about history and a big library. A must-visit in Mumbai

Must visit if you are in Mumbai; had a lot of informations, photographs of Gandhi's life. His seatting room and bedroom preserved and it gives you idea about how Gandhi lived; and best part about it is that the museum is free.

Must go here if you have been a follower of Gandhi and want to know what a part of his life was like - he used to live here for sometime. There is a small museum and also some of his personal items are kept here. Worth a visit to also see the beautiful lane where this house is located.
