This museum has a variety of items used by Gandhi while he was alive, and a lot of letters to people such as Hitler, Roosevelt and others, also photos and a diorama of his life. Very interesting and worth a visit

We were in a bus tour and stopped by. This was the Mumbai residence and is full of photographs of Ghandi and Nehru. Their are 3 floors with the first being mostly admittance and a library. Very little furniture. Actually consider it 3.5 stars.

If you are visiting Mumbai for the first time, then you must take time out to visit this museum to get a glimpse of the history of India's struggle for independence and of the life of the man behind the struggle - Mahatma Gandhi. Mahatma means a Great Soul. After seeing the museum you will realize why he was called... More

This informative, quiet little museum dedicated to Gandhi is a great place to visit. Though the displays are dated, they serve a purpose and fit with the general feeling and date of the rest of the place. Well wrth a visit

The house was the Gandhi relative's house, not his. It is a complete museum with all his private library. Entering this house is like to take a nice trip over his entire life and to see the pictures representing the most important moments of his life.

This house where Gandhi stayed has been converted to a museum with lots of pictures of him and some of his personal items. It is great that you can walk on the balcony where Gandhi stood and addressed crowds. They also have a nice library of materials on Gandhi and nonviolent protests. This is a must-see while in Mumbai.

The first time visit to this place itself has moved me so much that I think this was even better than the Gandhi Museum I did visit in Delhi. The place was so much more than a memorial place but I felt had a core of his life in display around here. I was really excited to see many rare... More
