Loved the exhibits, as they gave a chronological overview of Gandhi's life complete with pictures and details. There was also the historical backdrop of the occupation by the British, so you see everything in context. The purpose of a museum like this is to educate,...More

There is much to read & see in the museum, which gives an account of India's struggle for independence. The texts of the effects of British rule are shaming. The exhibition includes the bloody dhoti that Gandhi was wearing when he was assassinated.

A most informative visit, but such a lot to read! The chronological display was comprehensive, a mix of pictures and historical accounts, setting the picture of Ghandi's life in the context of events in India.
