I enjoyed the visit to the Gandhi museum, but probably only just above average for me. I think they succeeded in not being too anti-British, sticking to the facts by-and-large, saving hyperbole for things like the circumstances of his death.

One gets an overpowering sense of calm when you walk in here - away from the bustling streets of Mumbai - you can almost sense this great man's presence in the rooms. There is a charming model depiction of various episodes in his life which I found touching and rather moving. We did pay an entrance fee but this was... More

A worthwhile stop. The library on the first floor had anachronistic touches like a card catalog and restored pages hanging. The pictures and reproductions of letter to Hitler is amazing! The diorama set on the third floor captures the emotions of highlights of the life of this amazing man.

One of the few places in Mumbai to visit when you are in Mumbai. I must have visited this place more than 50 times. This place has so much to offer you can actually spend days there. Apart from information on Bapu you also learn a lot about our freedom .Second floor is where you spend most of your time.

Gandhi lived here for 19 years. On the top floor, his life can be followed through a series of about 20 small showcases. They are nicely done. There are also some interesting written artifacts and photos and a few personal objects. Skip the shop, offices, conference room and library on the first two floors. If you go to the Gandhi... More

The most impressive facet of Mani Bhavan Gandhi Museum is perhaps the fact that it still houses original letters of communications between Mahatma Gandhi, Adolf Hitler and Franklin Roosevelt. This seemingly peaceful building in Mumbai houses unspoken tales of the valiant struggle of a nation in bricks and stone, and is a must visit for every patriot. In 2010, Mani... More

The Museum is one of the best we have visited anywhere in the world. It is full of treasures, art and artefacts on a number of floors and audio guides are available to inform. The minimum time for a visit here is at least 2 hours and much more time could usefully be spent here.

Quite small and not a lot of exhibits but a good story telling museum which gives the history of Gandhi's life. Worth the visit.
