We went here as part of an excursion with a private guide. The museum is very old, but well looked after, we just paid about 20 rupees for entry. Gives good insight into Ghandis life and works. Is a must whilst in Mumbai

I have always admired Gandhi for his courage and how he made a difference in the world. The Museum is very small but I enjoyed the way it was presented well worth seeing.
