This is a great place to learn more about the remarkable life of Gandhi and relive in pictures and books some remarkable milestones in our history. Great preservation of historical records and well worth a visit.

C1 ( 2014.12.10 ) I decided to visit in Mumbai trip without fail, becuase Gandhi was respected to many people. There was no entrance fee but just donation. This house was exhibted about Gandhi's life, I was very impressive. Especially miniature exhibts was very goot to understand Gandhhi's life. Very good place to know Gandhi and Indian history, I think.

Mahatma Ghandi remains a revered figure. This is the house where he lived and is now a small, dusty museum devoted to his life and work. Worth a (brief) visit.

What a awesome feeling to visit and be in the same space than an icon and legend has lived in. Gandi was a simple man and wanted the best for mankind and equality for all. The museum is very informative as it takes you on journey through the life of Gandi, I walked out feeling bleesed and inspired.....

A good place to gain complete information on Mahatma Gandhi. The staff are friendly and one can get information leaflets in various international languages at the reception. They also sell books written by Gandhiji. The first level has a wonderful display of the life and times of Gandhiji.

Very interesting, I was very uneducated about Gandhi but the museum gives a good overview. Free to go in, but you can give a donation, and the souvenir books are good value

The Gandhi museum is just a MUST in Mumbai. This is the man who humbly changed and challenged the British Empire, and in this museum made me emotional. This little skinny man tore down the influence of a superpower of those days. He lowered himself to live with people that were " outcasts" and shared with them their lives. The... More

This is an amazing place - just to see where and how Gandhi lived. His collection of books is quite something and his story is brought to life brilliantly by the small 'doll' exhibits. You can also see the letters he wrote to world leaders including the one to Hitler. It's educational and also very moving.
