I knew very little of the personal details of Gandhi before going through this museum which is where he lived. All the memorabilia displayed along the tour route gave a huge insight into this remarkable man. The hallways of this three-story house are narrow and at times moving around when there are several others around can be a little daunting.... More

The museum is small and quaint, it offered some interesting information about Gandhi but its lay out and presentation was at times a bit dry (small text on plaques) some faded pictures. I dont want to put people of going because I think everyone should learn about Gandhi and this is not a bad place to do it but there... More

Sharing a little of the history of Gandhi in one a the places where he lived and was politically very active is definitly moving. This small quiet museum has a lot to offer in very simple ways. A very pleasant and enlightening visit. Strangely enough, the people at the hotel who gave the the directions to reach it had never... More

We enjoyed our visit to Mani Bhavan and learned a lot. The museum is quite small so it doesn't take very long to explore. If you are already in the neighbourhood it is definitely worth a visit and I am glad that an effort is being made to preserve the home and teach about Gandhi's achievements.

There's nothing to dislike. It tells all about Gandhi, India's freedom movement and deep rooted power of simplicity and non aggressiveness. The whole story unfolds through tiny figurines done up in great detail showing the get-up and the socio-political et al set up of the times. You come out with a peaceful heart and mind! There are books and mementoes... More

This is a small museum, which in a short period of time will offer you a capsulized picture of the simplicity of the life of this great man. Well worth the visit and you will leave with an understanding of how a common man can influence and motivate his people peacefully toward independence and gain the respect of the world.

Went here as my driver highly suggested it and I really enjoyed the way it's put together and felt should do it more often. Good to have knowledge of some of the history

My visit to this museum was short, as I had little time in Mumbai and several places I wanted to see. Arriving at the museum door about 20 minutes prior to its opening afforded me the time to wander up and down the quiet residential street and get the sense of the neighborhood by viewing the exteriors of some of...

On the way to the Gateway of India, and entry is by donation. This is a great little museum. Lots to see, read, and take in. If Gandhi was a hero to you, it's quite an interesting experience, standing in the rooms where he spent so much time. My children (aged 9 and 15) loved the model displays - this... More
