We spent more than 2 hours strolling through the exhibits at the Gandhi museum. Learned the history of India leading up to independence and the key players in history at Gandhi's time. Worthwhile visit while in Madurai.

This is one of the best historical place in Madurai. Here we can learn much about Indian freedom and the freedom fighters. And also visit the Gandhi Kutir, a model hut similar to the hut lived by Gandhi .....

I'm so pleased I visited this museum and I learnt a lot of things. It was very hot in there but the staff were very accommodating and turned on the massive fans for us which was a relief. A must do when visiting Madurai

The exhibition consists of many wall boards which tell the story of India's occupation and control, first by the East India Company, and then as part of the British Empire until independence. It is highly informative and well worth a visit if you know little about Indian history and Gandhi's attempts to change things by peaceful means. I do think... More

The Museum starts from the year 1700 and right upto 1947 giving a comprehensive history of our freedom struggle. It is a must see for the young boys and girls . There are also original artifacts of Mahatma Gandhi.

People who love to know historical facts and about freedom movement may like it But we have seen and heard it so many times that it becomes boring after a while. Visit if you are done with major tourist attractions in Madurai.

Boring and too much text. A lot of history and photo's. Bookshop opposite to the museum is very nice. Books about ghandi and for example about the hindu gods, for a cheap price.

They have preserved the historical artifacts pretty well. Despite being a government museum this one is pretty good and informational.
