“Worth a look”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2011

The home of Gandhi is now a quaint museum that showcases books and letters and quotes by this revered figure and highlights the major happenings of his life. It is a simple museum, but put together quite well. It won't take very long to get through...probably about 45 minutes. It's definitely worth visiting.

“Inspiring peaceful man”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2011

I enjoyed visiting Gandhi's house and learned so much. It was stange to see photo's off him as a young man, as I have always seen the older photo's. I was inspired by his beliefs and his treatment of his fellow man. A must visit.
