There are many floors to this museum and although very historic, it was just so-so for me. I didn't find the place warm but heck, its a museum so I cant blame them for it. The nice gentleman downstairs was selling exclusive stamp sets that seemed to be very cool. Definitely get some if you are a collector.

Good to learn more about the Mahatma and his life works. Situated in South Mumbai and was a little hard to find. Very enjoyable.

This is not your average museum. The visual time line of Ghandi is in 3-D boxes, with mini figurines, nothing like I am use to but very interesting. Not convenient to public transit. But worth getting there.

really worthwhile trip & very informative. What an amazing & inspiring man he was. Really enjoyed reading his words framed around the building. His life shown in pictures and words would work well for children to understand. I learnt so much more about this man from this visit - never knew he wrote to Hitler as just one example.

The Gandhi museum is well worth a look. 3 levels of artefacts and timeline to this great man. As mentioned the letter to Adolf Hitler is quite prominent .. Check it out it will only cost you a donation
