Part of our half day Mumbai Tour. Very interesting going round and seeing information and photos and documents from key points in Gandhi's life housed in a building he visited regularly when in the area

I thought I knew a fair amount about Gandhi, but this house was filled with pictures, models and stories that explained the various parts of this life so well.

"Mani Bhavan," also known as the Gandhi Museum formerly the Bombay residence of Mahatma Gandhi is now a museum dedicated to the spiritual leader's life and teachings. The museum houses an interesting array of exhibits depicting major events in Gandhi's dramatic life. The museum also boasts an impressive library. Everything is very well displayed and is certainly worth a visit.

Free entry. The house is on several stories - the ground floor mainly the store of 2000 books. On upper floors there is Gandhi's life in stories, artifacts, letters, newspaper articles and a rather strange set of model scenes depicting significant events in his life.

essential tourist visit, clean informative museum dedicated to the life of Gandhi. Remember to leave a small donation as entry is free. Also a good place to use the facilities if you are on a trip of the city.
