This is a place one must visit if you are interested in Indian history before its independence. They have preserved many belonging of Mahatma Gandhiji. For a young person like me it was a nice learning and understanding about Gandhiji and his efforts in getting freedom for India.

Quit India movement memories can be recalled here. Very few visitors are here. Many are not aware of this place. It is fault of Government which has ignored this place.

Really enjoyed the miniature 3D scenes of Ghandi at various historical events in his life, especially in South Africa. We actually visited this place twice because a small girl called Misha was selling the most beautiful bags outside the museum, for only Rs 250... More

To be in the same house as Gandhi was a total thrill. There are many of his items on show and you get the sense of what the man was all about. Everything is so simple and his possessions very few. The exhibition is very good as it charts his life and has items relating to particular periods in his... More
