Visited today and came away with renewed spirit for the world. The Ghandi exhibit is wonderful, with the amazing photographic display and intriguing displays and quotes. I learned so much about this amazing man. Including why he is lifted up,despite having never received the Nobel Peace Prize. Geir Lundestad, Secretary of Norwegian Nobel Committee in 2006 said, "The greatest omission in our 106 year history is undoubtedly that Mahatma Gandhi never received the Nobel Peace prize. Gandhi could do without the Nobel Peace prize. Whether Nobel committee can do without Gandhi is the question". In 1948, the year of Gandhi's death, the Nobel Committee declined to award a prize on the grounds that "there was no suitable living candidate" that year.
The upper gallery of winners is innovative and stirring. The gently changing display units are surrounded by multicolored lights and scored with soft music. They wind their way around the darkened room in no particular order, that I could discern. An absolutly wonderful experience.
