I visit this place only to see the Gandhiji's associations day warn cloth with blood-stains and also there are some of the original artifacts such as spectacles, slippers etc. Most of the descriptions (not all) are given by local languages.

This is a good place to go thru Indian history. Kids will like the place as they can relate the exhibits to their history book.

After school, I visited the museum after so many years...I was so happy to see that it was beautifully maintained and there was a wealth of knowledge to be learnt inside!

In fact, this place is full of interesting information related to dozens of persons involved n the freedom movement. You may like to spend more than an hour here. Take photos liberally to re-read the stuff later. Rather a surprising place to find in... More

Definitely worth a visit when in Madurai. A chronological history of the Ghandi movement & the founding of modern India. It's not air conditioned - but high ceilings & fans allow a smooth flow of air. Very educational!

Free museum, very informative about the fight for freedom of India from Britain. Tells the story of Gandhi's life. Very hot inside make sure you take plenty of water with you.
