The museum was mainly made up of posters full of text about what Gandhi did. There were few actual artifacts to look at although the case containing the clothes he died in was something I hadn't expected and was quite eerie to see. It is a nice building to look at but wouldn't say the museum is a must see.

Very moving. You can see the blood stained clothes Gandhi wore on the day he was shot. Always amazing to see anything related to Gandhi and why he is so great.

Our travel agent had planned this visit in our tour itinerary. We went to this museum. I am not a big museum fan so do not suggest to visit here. I should have visited the temple again instead of wasting my time here.

The Gandhi Museum was a very interesting place to visit. The History was well explained, just a bit much to read. The most impressing parts are the original glasses and towels of Mahatma Gandhi. If you stay in Madurai, this is a must see!

A bit confusing to wind your way through, but well worth a stop, especially given his connection to this city which most folks don't remember

Its one of the 5 Gandhi memorials situated across India. Setting up in madurai was significant because, Gandhi's way of dressing is said to be adapted after seeing the conditions of poor from the city. It has a blood stained garment worn around Gandhiji while he was shoot dead. Visit to if you get truly inspired by views of Gandhiji.
