This small museum gives a historical view of the life of Ghandi.There are many pictures showing the many stages of his life. It is worth a visit.

This is place is nothing but. Silent, Simple & Serene. The different storeys of the building take you to the different eras of Gandhi's life. The best part for me are those Miniature models taking you through Gandhi's Life story. Also they have on display Gandhi's letters and clothes n personal items Relive the Indian History. Go for it.

Walking around in the house that Gandhi lived in was for me an experience beyond words. Every Indian should visit this place.

Above all the places to visit in Mumbai, this museum which celebrates the life of this amazing man must not be missed. Allow yourself at least an hour, preferably 2.

This is an important place to go if you are even remotely interested in the life of Mahatma Gandhi. So much history of his life, and so much interesting memorabilia. I've been here twice, and feel like I learned/absorbed different details both times. We spent about 45 minutes here, but you could easily spend a couple of hours browsing through... More

Yes, its one of the best piece of Heritage and History in Mumbai. This the place where Gandhi stayed in Mumbai after returning from South Africa.

Very nicely made museum, in which one can easily spend 1-2 hours, especially if you want to read all information given. I especially liked the scenes of Gandhi's life - this would also be perfect for youngsters visiting the museum.

I have now returned to this Museum for the second time on this recent trip to Mumbai. It is so interesting, and shows such an incredible life of the Mahatma. Definitely spend a couple of hours here - well worth it.

We aren't really museum people but this was a spontaneous visit and we now realise just how little we knew about Ghandi and just how much we still want to learn. The museum is free but invites a modest donation. You need < 1 hour to visit. Strongly recommend you pop in.....and buy the book of his life for £3.
