Excellent museum, but crowded

Our visit to the museum was enjoyable, but large crowds made it difficult to take in the entire museum.

This home that is now a library has a lot of interesting information on Gandhi. His sitting room/bedroom is preserved and it gives you a glimpse of how Gandhi lived.

This museum was educational even if it was small. We learned a bit about Ghandi’s life and death. It also started quite a few intellectual conversations between the members of our group. The best part about it is that the museum is free. Donations are encouraged. I only wished that more information regarding Ghandi’s beliefs was provided for visitors who... More

Such a peaceful little museum offering wonderful photos and information about Ghandi's life. It's an enjoyable interlude in a tour of a crowded, noisy city.

To understand modern India you have to know about Gandhi, and this house where he stayed has fascinating artifacts and interpretive displays. It's real history.

It was very humbling to walk through this house where such great soul and man lived. Especially in this time of so much violence and fear, it was very powerful to be reminded of the force of love. Don't miss this experience!

Small museum, several flights of floors to climb, but although it was very busy it was quite calm after the hustle and bustle of Mumbai's streets. The top floor has models depicting the major milestones in his life, simple but effective. In all, well worth the visit to give you an insight into the life of Ghandi.

I lived on Laburnam road for a couple of years and at the end of my stay planned a visit to Mani Bhawan. The place is very well maintained, full of historical information and the staff is cordial. The place has maintained many articles of Mahatama Gandhi in their original condition. The visitors diary at Mani Bhawan has been signed... More

The museum is free and is full of great pictures and mini model scenes reinacting Ghandi's major life events. I bought the Book for only 300 rupies. One of the best things to do in Mumbai. Hire a tourist vehicle/taxi drive there.
