This museum has a great collection of artifacts which very well portray the life of Mahatma Gandhi. There are paintings, photographs and posters which give us a detailed understanding of the various incidents in the life of Mahatma Gandhi and India's freedom struggle. Items used by Gandhiji like clothes, utensils etc. are also well kept in the museum.

India has a deeply interesting history. The Ghandi Museum goes further back than Ghandi's life and paints a detailed picture of the countries origins, leading up to Ghandi's life, and what has followed since. Worth visiting. Nice to do on a hot day.
